Sir Chaloner Ogle of Copeland (b. 1680 Kirkley, Northumberland - d. 11 Apr 1750 age 70)

bur. St. Mary's parish church, Twickenham, London.[1]



BBC -- "In February 1722, Captain Challoner Ogle, commanding HMS Swallow, captured the pirate ship Great Ranger after a two-hour sea battle fought off the coast of what is now Nigeria. Five days later he was in action again, this time fighting the celebrated pirate Bartholomew Roberts and his pirate ship Good Fortune. Ogle was lucky - "Black Bart" was cut down by the first broadside, and his crew quickly lost heart.

Captain Ogle's double victory resulted in the mass hanging of his pirate prisoners in front of Cape Coast Castle and the complete eradication of piracy in west African waters."[2][2]
