Thomas Rogers and Anne Rogers were English counterfeiters convicted on 15 October 1690, for "Clipping 40 pieces of Silver" (in other words, clipping the edges off silver coins). Thomas Rogers was hanged, drawn and quartered, and Anne Rogers was burnt alive. These forms of punishment were meted out due to the persons' acts being considered High Treason.
