History of the Rogers Family

Starting with the oldest known relative so far, my Great Great Great Grandfather Thomas who married Phoebe in Elmdon

Like many of my relatives, My Great Great Grandfather Joseph was married and was buried in the Parish Church, Holy Trinity, Chrishall.
He was born and died in the Saffron Walden Union Workhouse!

My Great Grandfather James was also born in the Saffron Walden Union Workhouse but moved with his family to Nottingham between 1873 and 1875.
