Hi there,

I have a friend who's last name is also Rogers. When talking to him a few years ago about the taiaha course at Mokoia Island he also said that his whanau were from Rotorua, Mokoia Island. I'll ask my friend if his whanau might know the name your asking about. It's all worth a try!
Cheers

Tena Koe Azzarian,
You are on the right track as far as Rotorua is concerned. the Marae that the Rogers connect with, is called Owhata Marae, and it is situated around Hinemoa Point. the other connection to the Rogers is the Galvin whanau, but I do not personally know them. Ther is also a Rogers whanau in Wainuiomata that link to the same Rogers whanau but their father moved over to the East Coast and identified with whanau there.
Hope this helps.

I am a Clarke from Ngawha. The Rogers whanau you refer to have connections in Te Arawa and Ngapuhi (Ngawha).

There was a Sam Rogers who lived in Wainuiomata and worked at the Gear Meat freezing works in the 1960s-70s. He originated from Ruatoria. Having worked in the area, I found that the Rogers whanau of Ngapuhi and Rotorua are related to the Tairawhiti ones too. I was told that the original Pakeha landed in Taitokerau and had a fast waka. Anyway, the mother of Fred Bennett, the first Anglican Maori bishop was a Rotorua Rogers, if that helps.

Kiaora Sandy,

The Rogers/Clarke whanau originated from up North (Nga Puhi). The tribe that the Rogers whanau are most affiliated within Rotorua is Ngati Whakaue. Tamatekapua being one of our Marae. If you can locate the Rogers/Clarke Whanau book - you may find a few answers to your questions. My grandfather is a Rogers who still resides here in Rotorua. I will ask him if he has heard any of the names in you request

tena koutou

i see a few request for information on the rogers whanau. I have a huge box of geneology and books on all branches of the rogers family. William henry Rogers, an american whaler, was the first rogers in aotearoa. he had 4 different wives, spanning from ngapuhi, te arawa, and east coast. this is why the rogers are found everywhere. The next generation down, a number of his sons also had more than one wife, so again a rapid spread of uri. This is also where the clarkes fit in, and the name pokaihau. in te arawa, there are two main lines, pukehina and rotorua. in rotorua, the rogers connect widely in ngati whakaue, and descend from all 6 of the koromatua of ngati whakaue. The whanau at hinemoa point are my whanau as are the whanau at ohinemutu, and we also tie strongly to hurunga at ngapuna and uenukukopako. The hona whanau are also from hurunga at ngaouna and we actually relate to them. I can provide more info for anyone douglas.macredie@scionresearch.com 021983985

Kia Ora,

I am wondering if William Rogers here is William Thomas Rogers? He is my great grandfather and was born about 1888. I do believe he had a brother Charles also. My grandfather is Clifford Thomas Rogers born Christchurch; died in Sydney in 1963. Any information or guidance you can provide would help.

Thanks, Matt
