Meaning of Last Name

"rogers" family name, ancestry, and history

Origins: England

Rogers is a patronymic surname of English origin, deriving from the given name of Roger commonly used by the Normans and meaning 'son of Roger'. Variants include Rodgers (the 'd' is a Welsh addition), Rogerson, and Rogars, and there are pet forms such as Dodge, Hodge and Hedges. Most genealogists believe that the name Roger is derived from the pre-7th century Anglo-Saxon (Teutonic) name Hrothgar, which means 'fame and spear' ('hroð' fame or renown, 'gari' spear), the first reference to which is in Beowulf, the epic poem of the Dark Ages. Roger is possibly also a modern form of the ancient Irish name 'O'Ruadhraigh'. The given name was likely first introduced to England after the Norman Conquest of 1066, and is first recorded as 'Rogerus' in the Domesday Book of 1086. It was introduced to Ireland when the Anglo-Normans invaded in the 1170s. The first recorded mention of the surname is in the mid-13th century England. Examples include William Rogger in the subsidy tax rolls of the county of Sussex in 1296, and Henry Rogeres in similar records for Worcestershire of 1327. The first recorded spelling of the surname is shown to be that of Richard Roger from 1263. This is found in the 'Archaeological Records' of the county of Kent during the reign of King Henry III (1216-1272). The surname is now found commonly throughout the British Isles, particularly in southern and western England and also in Scotland and Wales as Rodgers. The surname was taken to Ireland in Cromwellian times, where it became used as an Anglicisation of the Gaelic name Mac Ruaidhrí, an Irish name meaning "son of red king". In England and Wales it ranks as the 77th most common surname. According to the 1990 United States Census, 'Rogers' ranked fifty-fourth in frequency among all reported surnames, accounting for 0.12% of the population.
