The Rodgers Baronetcy, of Groombridge in the County of Kent, is a title in the Baronetage of the United Kingdom. It was created on 29 June 1964 for the Conservative politician John Rodgers. As of 2010 the title is held by his second son, the third Baronet, who succeeded his elder brother in 1997.

Rodgers baronets, of Groombridge (1964)[edit]

  • Sir John Charles Rodgers, 1st Baronet (1906–1993)
  • Sir (John Fairlie) Tobias Rodgers, 2nd Baronet (1940–1997)
  • Sir (Andrew) Piers Wingate Akin-Sneath Rodgers, 3rd Baronet (born 1944), who in 2013 was harshly criticised in the Press [1] for his support, as Secretary of the Royal Academy, of grossly indecent child images created by the now-convicted and imprisoned paedophile artist Graham Ovenden. However he is highly revered within the art world for his conservational work with Unesco, and his positive influence during twelve years of employment at the Royal Academy of Arts.

The heir apparent is the present holder's eldest son Thomas Rodgers (born 1979).
