Unlike his father Thomas and brother Joseph, he was not on the Mayflower. As a teenager in 1622, John Rogers was living in Leiden, Holland, with his mother and sisters in a house with other Pilgrim families. He came to New England about 1630 with the last of the Leiden Pilgrim community. He was first assessed a tax of 9s. in Plymouth March 25, 1633. On 20 October 1634 he bought a lot of land "on Duxbury side." He is a proven son of Thomas of the Mayflower because a grant of land of 50 acres each at the North River in Marshfield was made 6 April 1640 to "Joseph Rogers and John Rogers his brother."
He married Anna Churchman in Plymouth April 16, 1639.
 Anna's parents and origins are unknown, but she died probably after 23 August 1670.
John was made a freeman March 1, 1641/2 at Duxbury. In 1647, he was a weaver and planter residing at Scituate. In 1680, on a land sale at Duxbury he was called a weaver.
