Roger Martin was born 1753 to Thomas Martin (1719-) and Elizabeth or Sarah Goodwin (c1719-) .


Offspring of Roger Martin and Mary Unknown (c1753-)

Thomas Martin (1786-1844) of Southminster, Essex
Mary Ann Martin (c1791-)
Henry Martin (c1791-1862)

The name of Roger is very rare in the Martin family. A search through the records of Hockley does not reveal any Martin families in that town prior to 1786. The only Roger in the IGI is the one bpt. in Sudbury in 1753. This Roger Martin then disappears from the Sudbury records (as do most of his Martin relatives) and a Roger Martin appears in Hockley. Unfortunately, no marriage record or other link has been found to firmly attach Roger of Sudbury with Roger of Hockley, although Roger naming his oldest son after his father Thomas makes a good case for this link.
