    Sir Edward Rogers was Comptroller of Queen Elizabeth's Household. He was an Esquire of the Body to Henry VIII and had a licence to import wine in 1534; on 11 December 1534 he became bailiff of Hampnes in the marches of Calais and Sandgate in Kent. At the Coronation of Edward VI he was dubbed a Knight of the Carpet, and on 15 October 1549 was made one of the four Principal Gentlemen of the Privy Chamber. In January 1549-50 he was confined to his house in connection with the misdemeanours of the Earl of Arundel, whom he had doubtless assisted in his peculations but he was soon free, and on 21 June 1550 had a pension of 501 granted to him. As an ardent protestant he deemed it prudent to go abroad in Queen Mary?s days. Under Elizabeth he obtained important preferment. On 20 Nov, 1558 he was made Vice-Chamberlain and Captain of the Guard, and a Privy Councillor, in 1560 he succeeded Sir Thomas Parry as Comptroller of the Household. He died before 21 May 1567.
