Luke OGLE, gentleman, of Eglengham (Eglingham) [Eglingham, Northumberland]
Date of probate: 1596
will, 5 July 1596 (DPR/I/1/1596/O1/1-2)

Wilson (1939), states:[12]

"In 1561:
  • Gerard Salvln of Croxdale,
  • John Brimley, the organist of the cathedral,
  • and Robert Birkhead
were ejected from certain tithes of Bishop Middleham rectory which they held by lease of 1539 from the Priory of Durham;[13] similarly in 1565, Carham rectory (which had belonged to Kirkham Priory) was in the occupation of:
  • Luke Ogle,
  • John Carr of Ford,[14]
  • and Robert Collingwood, the constable of Etal,[15]
but Thomas Clarke of Wark obtained a lease of it in reversion, and despite the protests of the existing lesees and of the Earlof Bedford and Sir John Forster, in 1566 he was in possession of a lease dated in 1564.[16] When rebellion was undertaken one of the Salvins, one of the Carrs of Ford, and the constable of Etal were all found ranged behind the Saris, and, like the many of the actors in the plot were largely moved by resentment at Elizabeth's policy in government,"
