  (2) Robert Rogers 'of Poole' (d 1555) possibly fits here
Robert is not mentioned by any of our sources for this family but he is identified by BLG1952 ('Webb formerly of Odstock') as son of Sir John of Stockbridge & Houghton and so, as (North) Houghton was a minor holding of Sir John of Bryanstone, was possibly of this family (and, if so, was probably of this generation & marriage). Thanks to a contributor (RS, 28.04.15) for advising us that Robert's family was as follows.

William Rogers of Dowdeswell (d 21.10.1558) - continued above
BLG1952 starts with William "whose will was proved in 1558", identifying him as son of an unnamed Rogers of Dowdeswell by his wife, Joan, having reported that "Owing to the loss or destruction of records, the early part of the pedigree can be traced only with difficulty." BLG1952 reports that William "was probably father of' Richard and then follows Richard's line. The above connection is given by MGH, supported by Visitation (Gloucestershire).
