Said by many to be of Luppitt, Devon, but:
Therefore we might guess that George was born around 1470, and he died in Langport in Somerset in 1524. SHow did George Rogers come to be called ?of Lopit? and is he any relation to Edward Rogers the juror of Luppitt in 1536?

The first sighting of the Rogers in Luppitt, is that of Edward Rogers who is a juror at the court baron of Edmund Carew at Mohuns Ottery in 1536 (PRO ref .E 179 /...........)
How does this fit:

George Rogers was described of Lamport ( Langport ) in his will of 1524 , but he willed that his body to be buried at Thruxton and the priest was given ...
