- Henry Ogle of Eglingham was one of the sequestrators for land for the
parliament in 1643 and on the 29th of November, 1644, was a deputy lieutenant
for the county. He was a stong parliamentarian and in 1650 he entertained
Cromwell at Eglingham, and the room where his guest slept is still standing at
the Hall. He was a representative for the county in the Little Parliament
1653, and was again returned as such on 4 September 1654. Henry's name occurs
frequently as Captain Henry Ogle in State Papers, and he seems to have been
very active; it seems proble that prior to the Restoration in 1660 he made over
some of his property in case he should have been deprived but however that may
be, on 20 June 1668, he entailed his property on his two grandchildren, with
remainder to his own sons.
Administration of his estate not completed 18 August 1697.
