Rogers was born at Plymouth in 1794, and educated at Plymouth Grammar School. He studied there under Dr. John Bidlake alongside Samuel Prout, Benjamin Haydon, and Charles Lock Eastlake.[1] In the latter part of his life he resided on the Continent from motives of economy, and died at Lichtenthal, near Baden-Baden, June 25, 1853.[2]


His works, some of which were close imitations of nature, were local views around Pymouyth, found a place in the collection at Saltram House. About 1813 he painted a large picture, The Bombardment of Algiers, which was engraved; and about 1820 some views on the Spanish coast. He was an occasional exhibitor at the Royal Academy up to 1835.[2] Dartmoor (1826) by Noel Thomas Carrington had etched illustrations by Rogers.[3]
