Margaret Rogers[1][2]was baptized May 30, 1613 at Watford, Northamptonshire, England.[3][2][1]

Margaret stayed behind in Leiden when Thomas and Joseph Rogers took their voyage on the Mayflower. A poll tax in 1622 recorded them living in the Over 't Hoff quarter of Leiden.[4][5]

It is thought that Margaret may have come to the Plymouth Colony with her mother, sister Elizabeth and brother John about 1629 or 30, as Governor Bradford said that "the rest of Thomas Rogers's came over and are married and have many children".[6] She may have married in Plymouth Colony and had issue.[2]

Research note

One theory is that both Alice and Margaret died in 1622 of a European Plague at the estate of Martyr John Roberts the Paternal great grandfather.[7]

Thank you Bobbie

I've moved the bit about a plague death to research notes. This makes little sense and should probably be removed - what "Roberts" great-grandfather? What is the source?
