Henry Ogle and John Ogle of Eglingham

Henry Ogle of Eglingham, 1600-1669, 18th generation:
Henry Ogle was born in the year 1600. Son of Luke of Eglingham, in 1638 he was taking the inventory of Arthur Hebburn of Hebburn, after the latter's demise. In 1643, he was a sequestor of land for Parliament. Henry was to become a strong Parliamentarian, so much so that he entertained Oliver Cromwell in Eglingham Hall. Henry was a representative to "Little Parliament" for the county. He was referred to as "Captain Henry Ogle".(1)
In 1649 and 1650, the infamous "Scottish witch finder", or "witch pricker" was accusing various men and women in Newcastle upon Tyne of being witches. The method for identifying witches was crude and suspect, to say the least. The witch pricker would stab the accused person's inner thigh in the presence of a jury, and it was usually done in a way as to disguise an action that did not really pierce their skin. If the accused did not bleed or feel pain, they were accused of being a witch. One man and fourteen women were executed in Newcastle for witchcraft.
Captain Henry Ogle, in his role as Justice of the Peace arrested a witch finder as he traveled through Northumberland and exposed him as a charlatan. The witch finder managed to escape to Scotland and was later apprehended and executed for his crimes. The witch finder had confessed to having caused the executions of around three hundred people.
Henry married Jane Forster. They had eight children, John Ogle of Eglingham, 1621, Nicholas Ogle, Thomas Ogle, Robert Ogle, Henry Ogle, Ralph Ogle, Richard Ogle, and Mary Ogle Carr. Mary Ogle married John Carr of Lesbury and West Ditchburn. John Carr had a brother, Robert Carr of Aledike in Alnwick Parish.(2) Mary and John had a son named Robert Carr of Lesbury.
John Ogle of Eglingham, 1621-1686, 19th generation:
John Ogle was born in Eglngham in 1621. By 1650, he received the commission of Captain, and in 1654 he was high Sheriff. John was in possession of Eglingham well before his father's death. His father Henry was a Parliamentarian who backed the rebellion during the English Civil War, and the move was possibly an effort to keep Eglingham in the family after the restoration of king Charles II.
John married Eleanor Pringle, the daughter of Robert Pringle of Stitchell, Scotland. John's son Henry Ogle of Eglingham married Appolina Howard around 1664. Henry was likely the first born son. After the death of Appolina in 1689, Henry married Grace Widdrington. Henry and Grace's son Henry died without heirs in 1713, and the Eglingham estate was succeeded by Robert Ogle. John Ogle is reputed to be the brother of Henry, although it is very much disputed. Born in 1649, John made his way to Delaware in America along with the Nicholls Expedition and fought on the side of England against the Dutch in New York and Delaware, where he remained and raised his family. Their other siblings were Robert, who married Dorothy Grey of Howick, Margaret Ogle Manners, and Anne Ogle Weener.
Subsequent heirs to Eglingham included John Ogle, Ralph Ogle, Robert Ogle, and his son Robert, who died in 1890. Eglingham Hall was sold to the Bewicke family around 1900 and has remained with their descendants to the present time.
