This allows us to generate a project watchlist for all these profiles. As a member you can follow the feed of the England Project profile to see what work is being done on profiles. To join the PPPs Team for England you need to have the pre-1500 badge. Please see Gillian Thomas for details.

Please contact Susie or Gillian if you have a profile or profiles that you would like to have managed by the England Project.

If you google this website, there are lots of photos of English flags free to download. The flag with the red cross on a white background is the flag of St. George.

Hope this helps

I'm not sure if would work it is the way the England flag is. However if you add the county to the sticker it comes up with all sorts of colourful flags

Any way we could get a border around the flag graphic? Looks like a big red plus sign with the white background. Just wondering.

Hi! Now that things have settled down a bit, what process would you like used if I have a profile that I think needs PPP & that I think the England Project would be the best project to manage it?

I've just started going through my watchlist again to check that the PPP'd ones have a project - Stourton-36 & Dennis-464 don't, and they're not likely to be included in the Manga Carta Project any time soon. Holand-37, Tuchet-10, & Tuchet-7 are some more that I think need to retain PPP & England Project is best fit. Should I just add the project account & project box?

Let me know how you'd like me to proceed.

Hello All. I am Mark S. Rogers (Kit 495223 and Ancestry Tree under Marksrogers_1999). I can trace my lineage to English immigrant Robert Rogers (settling in Columbia, PA) married to Elizabeth Sloat. I am having trouble going back further than the early 1800s to about 1850. I have the Haplogroup R-M269 which I am told is a part of Mayflower Passenger Thomas Rogers' lineage. I am curious to know whether any Rogers descendants have traced ancestral ties to Robert Rogers of early Colonial fame as the founder of Rogers' Rangers? It seems after the American Revolutionary War, he returned to England but little is known other than he wrote plays which were passed over by critics. I'm thinking he may have had children carrying his 1st name down through to my English immigrant ancestor. Any new information would be appreciated. The following is from a citation on my Ancestry tree:

WILLIAM R. ROGERS (brother of my great-great grandfather): This well-known and popular citizen of Columbia is one of the Pennsylvania Company's experienced and trusted engineers. He was born in Wrightsville, York county, on Aug. 31, 1859, and is the eldest of five children born to Samuel S (unknown what the 'S' stands for) (my 3rd g-g father) and Sarah (Cohick) Rogers, of that county, his parents having married July 4, 1856. His younger brother, Americus V (Vespuccius) (my g-g grandfather), conducts a well equipped barber shop in Columbia; his sister, Christina, is the wife of Joseph Archer, railroad conductor, and lives in Philadelphia. The two younger children, Grant and Byron, died in infancy. Samuel S. Rogers was a gallant Union soldier during the Civil war, a member of the 145th P. V. I., (Enlistment Date: 25 Feb 1865; Enlistment Place: Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, USA; Mustered Out Date: 27 Feb 1865; Muster Place: Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, USA; Rank: Private; Unit Type: Infantry: Regiment: 47th Pennsylvania Volunteer Infantry; Company B; and later enlisted as a Sergeant in Company B, Pennsylvania 47th Infantry Regiment on 27 Feb 1865. Mustered out on 25 Dec 1865 at Charleston, SC) and received a Confederate bullet in his arm. He was a carpenter, and after receiving his discharge, worked at his trade in his native bailiwick. He died at the age of sixty-three years, in 1895. He was the son of an English immigrant, Robert Rogers, who married Elizabeth Sloat, of York county. The father was employed in building the old State road and later in the construction of the Pennsylvania line; he died in 1872. Samuel S. Rogers, the father of William R., was the eldest of their three children, the others being John and Mary A. As has been already said, the maiden name of the mother of William R. Rogers was Sarah Cohick. Her father, Robert, was a railroad man, and lost his life in an accident on Jan. 16, 1861, having reached the age of forty-eight years. He married Christina Buckin, who first saw the light as it shone upon the crested billows of the Atlantic. Her parents settled at Rohrerstown. Her mother lived to be four score years and died on March 13, 1890. Her younger sisters were Clara (Mrs. Robert Hall), of Columbia; Mahala, the widow of William Allen, of Philadelphia; Anna M., the wife of Elliott Frederick, of the same city; and Amelia, who married David Coleman, the proprietor of a barber shop in Columbia. At the age of five, in 1863, William R. Rogers came to live with his grandmother in Lancaster county, but returned home after four years. There he remained until his marriage to Miss Eva McClane, which occurred on Sept. 5, 1891. They have had two sons, Grant G. and John F. Mr. Rogers is a member of the Brotherhood of Locomotive Engineers, in politics a Republican, and in religious faith, a Lutheran. Mrs. Rogers is the daughter of Henry and Elizabeth (Morrison) McClane, of Adams county. Her father was a shoemaker and a justice of the peace, and died in May, 1896, in his eighty second year. Her mother, who was born in May, 1827, is still living in Manor township. Besides Mrs. Rogers, eight children were born to them: Mary, John, Joseph, Susan, Douglas, Christian, George and Levi. Only three of these are living. Joseph is a resident of Marietta, Pa., and Douglas of Port Royal, in this State. Susan is the wife of Henry Wise, of Petersburg.

There's a "red" category (meaning it doesn't exist) on Mauleverer-19 - could someone take a look? My instinct would be to make it simply [Category:Yorkshire, England], but thought it would be better to ask.
