THE OGLE ARMS PROPER
OR THOSE USED BY THE DIFFERENT BRANCHES OF THE FAMILY
 


OGLE OF OGLE

Argent, a fesse between three crescents gules. These are given in The Arms of Old English knights (Harl. MS. 2116, fol. 7). (Harl. MS. 1386, fol. 82.)
Crest: the earliest evidence of a crest appears to have been a plume, which was probably actually worn on the helmet. (Ap, 34.) (Cal. Scot. 1346.)  A junior branch used argent, three crescents gules between seven crosses. (Ap. 51.) (See Bothal Castle.)
[Based on this description the image of Irish Ogle and English Ogle 2 seems more appropriate an Arms example]
 


THE OGLES OF OGLE AND BOTHAL

Argent, a fesse between three crescents gules, for Ogle, quartering, or, an orle, azure, for Bertram. Supporters, an antelope and a monkey, argent, collared and chained, or. (Two bulls have also been used.)
Crest : a heraldic antelope's head, erased, argent, tufted, maned and horned, or, for Ogle (Harl, MS 1448. fol. 18 b), and a bull's head, or, armed, azure, ducally gorged, gules, for Bertram. (Harl, MS. 1448, fol. 22.) These arms were used circa 1375, and are shown on the tombstone in Hexham abbey church, 1410. The supporters were used in 1461.
Badges, 1, an acorn vert and or, with two oak leaves, vert ; 2, five roses, argent, rayed by the sun. (Bothal Church.)


THE OGLES OF CAUSEY PARK

As above, without supporters, but differenced with a crescent; apparently the difference mark was afterwards dropped and the arms are so shown in 1761 in Hebburn chapel. (Burke's Armoury; Harl. MS. 1448, fol. 22.)


THE OGLES OF KIRKLEY

As above, but differenced with a mullet, instead of a crescent (Her. Col.)


THE OGLES OF WORTHY

As above, but differenced with a crescent and augmented with the badge of Ulster.


THE OGLES OF HIRST

Viscount Ogle used as a seal, argent, a fesse, between three crescents, gules, and these are on his mural tablet in Michelmersh church, but in the county Hall at Winchester, Sir William Ogle's arms are shown as, argent, a fesse, between three mullets, gules, differenced by a mullet.


THE OGLES OF LANCASHIRE

As for Ogle and Bothal, differenced with a crescent, but without supporters.


THE OGLES OF NORTHAMPTON

As above, differenced with a crescent. (Harl. MS. 1467.)


THE OGLES OF CHOPPINGTON

As for Ogle and Bothal, differenced with a mullet, but without supporters.


THE OGLES OF BURRADON

As above, but differenced with a crescent. (Harl. MS. 1374.)


THE OGLES OF EGLINGHAM

Quarterly, 1 and 4; argent, a fesse, between three crescents, gules; 2 and 3 ; or, an orle, azure; on a chief of the last, six annulets, or. Crest: an arm, armed in mail, issuing from a circle of gold holding a sword broken in the middle, with a bloody edge hilted and pommelled, or, mantled, gules, doubled, argent. These are the arms generally used by the family, and are so given in Burke's Armoury, but other records of the arms granted to Mark Ogle of Eglingham differ. (Harl, MS. 752; and 1507, fol. 401/2.) The arms on an old tombstone in Eglingham church are the same as for Ogle and Bothal, and the seal used by Luke Ogle in 1690 and by Henry Ogle of Eglingham in 1701, was argent, a fesse, between three crescents, gules, the latter's crest being an antelope's head (Ap. 500, 517) and are similar to those on the statue of Sir George Ogle in St. Patricks cathedral, Dublin

Canon Albert Ogle also found mention http://revpatrickcomerford.blogspot.com/search?q=Ogle

I have yet to find what happened to George or Albert during the 1798 rebellion.  During the rebellion and at the urging of some Catholic Prest many Protestants were slaughtered.

On the Right: Entrance to the Bellevue Estate looking in to where the tenement farmers' homes were.  Note the guard portico to the left.  George Ogle had his private militia known as Ogle's Loyal Blues though many locals referred to them as Ogle's Bloody Blues.  Richard and Henry Pidgeon were tenement farmers and members of Ogle's militia during the uprising of 1798.  http://www.wepidgeon.com/wexford_photos.htm

THE ARMS AND QUARTERINGS OF LORD OGLE

The arms with the quarterings shown in Plate 1., are taken from Cooke's Baronage (Add. MS. 5504), the arms shown are those of
 1) Ogle,
 2) Hepple, *Joan Hepple between 1363-1364
 3) Chartney, *I can not find a marriage to a Chartney
 4) Gubium, *Margaret Gubium to Robert Ogle between 1295-1350
 5) Heton, *Joan Heton to Robert Ogle of Cullerton between 1351-1409
 6) Acton, *Helen Acton to Nathaniel Ogle between 1795-1853.  Found in pedigree for Ogles of Kirkley & Southampton
 7) Bertram, *Alena/Ellen Bertram of Bothal c: 1351
 8) Kirkby, *Isabel Kirkby - c: 1477
but they are not in their right order, nor are they complete. (Harl, MS. 1160 f, 26 b.).  
These arms would suit the second to the fifth Lord Ogle,
the sixth Lord Ogle might also have borne an escutcheon of pretence; gules, three greyhounds, courant , argent, collared, or, the arms of Mauleverer;
the seventh Lord Ogle, an 'escutcheon of pretence, argent, two bars azure, in chief, three hurts, and in a canton, a barry of six, the arms of Carnaby (Harl, MS. 216) sometimes shown without a canton, (Harl. 1429. f 29) and the arms of Carnaby are shown in addition to the other quarterings, in the arms of the earl of Newcastle (Harl. MS. 1073), but a shield of the duke of Newcastle omits the arms of Gubium as delineated.
The duke of Portland and the marquis of Salisbury quarter the same, but it appears that the arms of Carnaby quarter per pale, gules and azure, a lion rampant, guardant, Or (Harl. 1429 fol. 29. 1470 fol 194).
Another shield of the Lord Ogle ; bears 1st Grand Quarter, Ogle quartering Bertram. 2nd Grand Quarter, Tyson quartering Gubium, 3rd Grand Quarter, Chartney quartering Acton, 4th Grand Quarter, 1st Hepple, 2nd and 3rd gules, a fret, or, in a canton, a chevron, between three roundles, 4th Kirkby (Her. Col. Harl. MS, 246 fol 51.)
Another shield bears 1st and 4th Grand Quarter, Ogle quartering Bertram, 2nd Grand Quarter, Tyson, 3rd Grand Quarter, Acton quartering Kirkby, supporters, two bulls. (Her. Col.)

Based on the dates above all marriages into the Ogle family occurred before Cavendish became Lord Ogle by marrying Katherine Ogle 1568 - 1629, except for Helen Acton with dates of 1795-1853.  I will eventually have an answer to this but it may be in my next life.
