"William Hazen Rogers (born May 13, 1801) was an American master silversmith and a pioneer in the silver-plate industry and whose work and name have survived to the present day. Rogers partnered with other silversmiths at times, and his company and trademarks were eventually taken over by larger companies. Rogers was born on a farm on May 13, 1801, to Sarah Reynolds (1777-?) and Asa Rogers (1798-1824). After he left home, he went on to become a silversmith, watchmaker and jeweler. From 1820 to 1825, Rogers was an apprentice to Joseph Church, a silversmith and watchmaker in Hartford. In 1825, Rogers became partners with Church and their company, Church & Rogers, initially manufactured silver-plate flatware and hollowware. He was also partner, from 1832 to 1838, with Asa Harris Rogers, his younger brother, as "A Rogers Jr. & Co." while still associated with Church & Rogers. Rogers – together with his two brothers and, later, his son – was responsible for more than 100 patterns of silver and silver-plated cutlery and serving dishes. Many of Roger's designs were influenced by Louis XIV-style patterns of the 17th and 18th century in France, and he was best known for his Elberon pattern and "Presidential" cutlery series. The companies in which one or more of the original Rogers brothers (William, Asa and Simeon) were actively interested and the dates they were organized are as follows: Rogers Brothers, Hartford, in 1847; Rogers, Smith & Co., Hartford, in 1856; Rogers & Brother, Waterbury, in 1858; William Rogers Mfg. Co. (Wm. Rogers & Son), Hartford, in 1865; Rogers Cutlery Co., Hartford, in 1871. These concerns, as well as the Meriden Britannia Co. (beginning in 1862) continued the production of "1847 Rogers Bros" and at various times have been part of the lnternational Silver Co. All three of the partners, William, Asa and Simeon, were in the employ of the Meriden Britannia Co. when they died.
