Facts and Events
Name Roger Honnyng
Gender Male
Birth? 1564
Death? after 1566

Born circa 1564 - the same year as William SHAKESPEARE. Pictured in a falling lace collar; a singular close dress of broad black and white parallel stripes; a dagger, and a cord round his neck, the article dependent by which is concealed by his right hand; on a table before him a mariner's compass; a red cross on his shield, signifying death. As with his sister Jane, a separate portrait of Roger existed in 1856, in which he is holding a wheel-lock pistol; the object hanging from a red cord around his neck is a spanner for the wheel-lock; and above his shoulder, as if seen through a window, is a three-masted ship in full sail, with St George’s red cross flying on the maintop.

Roger is mentioned in his father’s will of 1566, but not in his mother’s of 1571.
