While on my road trip, one of my favorite stops was at the New London, CT Historical Society to visit their library.  I found many wonderful items on the Rogers Family that I will be sharing in upcoming posts.  Todays entry is dedicated to an interesting handwritten family history written by Wolcott B. Manwaring on the Rogers and Harris Families.  I photographed the loose pages when i was there and when I tried to print them out and make a PDF of them to post, well, lets just say that didn’t work out so well so here are the photographs.

This first page has the card catalog info on the item.  It’s not a book but in their loose papers collection.

The page below starts with James Rogers, son of James Rogers and Elizabeth Rowland born 15 Feb 1652 and lists his children with Mary Jordan.

This page gives info on james Rogers, son of James Rogers and Mary Jordan and his children by Elizabeth and also by Freelove Hulburt (great name, no?)

This page has info on Capt James Rogers, son of James Rogers and Elizabeth born 20 Aug 1704 and his children with Mary Harris

This page has info on Capt William Rogers, son of James Rogers and Mary Jordan born 1693 and his children with Elizabeth Harris

This page has info on Peter Rogers, son of William Rogers and Elizabeth Harris and his children with Lucy Tinker widow of Daniel Harris.

The rest of the pages are a letter written to Mr. Manwaring in 1907 by a Anna B Williams and seems to concern the Harris family more but I include it here as it was part of the same lot of papers and I’m sure would prove useful if you wanted to trace the Harris line.

Here is a photo I took of the front of the New London Historical Society.  NOTE IF YOU GO…. You can park right in front of this building even though the curb appears to be painted yellow.
