Biographical Notes A John Rogers (1800?-1882) was active at the time of the publication of the print engraved by J. Rogers in George Newenham Wright’s Ireland Illustrated (1831), inserted by Miss Hammill (q.v.) in her diary of travels in Wales and Ireland (1828-1829). He practised in line-, etching- and stipple-engraving. Much of his output was topographical, appearing in such works as the England’s Topographer series of Kent views (1828-1831), the partwork series Picturesque Beauties of the Counties of Surrey and Sussex (1829-1830), Wales Illustrated (1830-1831), Views of the Seats, Mansions, Castles, etc. of Noblemen and Gentlemen (1829-1831), Thomas Hosmer Shepherd’s London and its Environs in the Nineteenth Century (1829-1832), and The Watering Places of Great Britain (1833). He is also known for his portraits of national figures and leading actors, the latter mainly in the early and mid-1820s.
