Thomas Stevens is credited with producing the first of these coloured silk bookmark type ribbons in 1862, so it assumed the silk above was made after that date.
John Rogers junior is to be found in the 1871 Coventry census, described as a ribbon manufacturer, aged 26. His father, also John, was recorded in the 1851 census as a ribbon weaver, but with no age given.
A John Rogers is found in the Coventry directories of 1874, 1881, 1883 and 1886, with the address of 46 East Street. This John could be either the father or the son.
