Henry was born in 1868 at Cobar, New South Wales.2 He was the son of George Rogers and Margaret (?)2 As of 1869, Henry Cyril Rogers was also known as Harry.3 He was a grazier, with a large number of pastoral holdings in northern NSW and southern Queensland in March 1893.4,3 Henry lived in March 1893 at 'Kilaloolah' Obley, in Cobar, New South Wales.4

He married Alexandra Sutherland, daughter of Hugh Joseph Sutherland and Margaret Nicholson, in a Wesleyan ceremony at the residence of Hugh Sutherland on Thursday, 16 March 1893 at Cornish Town, Cobar, New South Wales. Witnesses to the wedding were Ernest Field Peacock.4 Henry Cyril Rogers was sick but wanted to go out horse-riding; her mother Allie said 'no' and her father said 'yes'. So off she went and became very sick in 1905.3 Following the death of his daughter Bonnie, Harry had a break-down and literally walked away from the farm in about 1919, leaving his wife and children.5,3

Henry died circa 1942 at the Sydney suburb of Randwick.1 He was buried circa 1942 at at Rookwood Cemetery in the Sydney suburb of Rookwood.1
