Luke Ogle of Eglingham Hall is my 10x great-grandfather, his descendants were parliamentarians and supported Cromwell during the English Civil War, The Ogle family also supported King Richard III during the period known as the Wars of the Roses and many fought at the Battle of Bosworth.
I have recently found three DNA matches with this branch of my family, all leading to Luke Ogle, which isn’t surprising as many of his ancestors were cousins and so any DNA inherited from him or passed down to his two children (who also married cousins) would have a strong match.

He was a representative for the county in the Little Parliament 1653, and was again returned as such on 4 Sep 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 Jun 1668, he entailed his property on his two grandchildren, with remainder to his own sons.Administration of his estate not completed 18 Aug 1697.
