The Rogerenes were members of a pacifist religious sect founded by John Rogers (1648-1721) in New England in the late 1670s.

The Rogerenes settled around New London County, Connecticut. Sometimes called Rogerene-Quakers, they were not members of the Society of Friends. However, their pacifist religious doctrines and worship practices were strongly influenced by Quakers, especially William Edmundson, a Friend from Ireland who visited in 1675. During the early New England period, the sect was persecuted because it denounced the limitations placed on freedoms of worship and conscience. The Rogerenes were active in the abolition movement and in founding the Universal Peace Union. In the 1880s, the group called itself the Quaker Society of New London. Their numbers dwindled by the end of the 19th century. Prominent Connecticut family names associated with the Rogerenes include Waterhouse/Watrous, Rogers, Crouch, Bollet, Whipple, and Chapman.
