* Note: Francis's grandfather, Francis Newman of North Cadbury, called attention in his will to "his wife's "promise of doing justice to her successor, my grandson Francis James Newman Rogers." From this it is deduced that Francis's middle name was James as confirmed by Access Genealogy. As noted below, he may have been known by the name James Newman.

Francis Newman-Rogers: Francis appears to have been a very different character and much more successful lawyer than his grandfather Francis Newman. Indeed, he has achieved recognition to the extent of having aWikipedia page dedicated to him and also a Wikisource page. He even has his own Facebook page.
It also appears that Francis took over the Rogers' ancestral home of Rainscombe Park in Wiltshire, becoming known as Francis Newman of Rainscombe (see Access Genealogy website).
According to Louisa Annie Rogers' notes, Catherine's sister Frances Newman "left these books to the son of her sister, who married the Revd S. Rogers Rector of Queen Camel. Francis Newman-Rogers, who took the name of Newman at his grandfather's request. This Newman-Rogers married his cousin Julia Yea - became Recorder of Exeter and rebuilt Rainscombe. Grandfather of my husband F.E.N. Rogers." She goes on to state that the books were given by her husband's uncle the Revd E.H. Rogers to her son Francis Henry Rogers in trust for his son Timothy. From this we can deduce that Francis Newman-Rogers was the great-grandfather of Louisa's son Francis Henry Rogers and great great grandfather to his son Timothy Rogers, father of Jonathan and Alex Newman-Rogers.
Below is a portrait of a young Francis Newman-Rogers dated 1797.
