Colonial Virginia

Most Ogles of Colonial Virginia, prob. desc. from John Ogle of Delaware.[1] But some did not, including John Ogell (b. abt. 1616/7), who arrived almost 60 years before;[2] and Martin Ogle of Tritlington & London, who may have been in America at the same time as John of Delaware.

Martin Ogle (dsp. bef. 28 Oct 1691)

One of the earliest Ogles to live in Colonial Virginia. His relationship to John Ogle of Delaware (b. c. 1648/9), is uncertain.
Martin Ogle was the son of George Ogle of Tritlington, co. Northumb.[3] & London, co. Middlesex and a dau. of Lancelot Ogle of Cowpen, co. Northumb & Dorothy Watson. He lived in Virginia for 30 years, before returning to his homeland. His sister Dorothy Ogle of Tritlington & London, became the family heir. Through William Ogle of Causey Park (b. abt. 1491 - d. 1542), siblings Martin and Dorothy were direct paternal desc. of Ralph, 3rd Baron Ogle and Margaret Gascoigne. Dorothy's husband was a John Ogle, from an unknown family branch, but it's been conjectured that he was of Pinchbeck, co. Lincs
