Francis Edward Newman Rogers
Francis Edward Newman Rogers MP (26 December 1868 – 28 March 1925) was an English Liberal politician, member of parliament for Devizes from 1906 to 1910. He was also a member of Wiltshire County Council and a farmer.
Rogers was the son of Walter Lacy Rogers, of Rainscombe, Pewsey, Wiltshire, and of Hermione Lucy Hamilton, daughter of John James Edward Hamilton and sister of Sir Edward Hamilton, 4th Baronet, of Iping House, Midhurst. He was also a descendant of the jurist Francis James Newman Rogers and was educated at Eton College and Balliol College, Oxford.
As a Liberal parliamentary candidate, Rogers contested Devizes unsuccessfully in 1900 before being elected as its member of parliament for the parliament of 1906–1910. Having lost that seat to Basil Peto at the January 1910 general election, he contested Salisbury, again unsuccessfully, in December 1910.
