Ogle History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms

Early Origins of the Ogle family

The surname Ogle was first found in Northumberland where the earliest record of the name was of Humphrey de Hoggell who was granted a deed by William the Conqueror to enjoy "all the liberties and royalties of his manor of Ogle in an ample as a manner as any of his ancestors enjoyed the same before the time of the Norman invasion." Another source adds to this claim, " the manor formed part of the possessions, and was the residence, of the Ogle family, who were seated here before the Conquest, and with whom it continued till the time of Elizabeth. " [1] The township of Shilvington in Northumberland was home to another branch of the family. "It was anciently a manor in the Merlay barony, and was the property of the knightly families of Gubium and Ogle, the connexion of the latter of whom with the place was revived in 1830, the Rev. J. Savile Ogle then purchasing the estate." [1]

The Ogle Motto +

The motto was originally a war cry or slogan. Mottoes first began to be shown with arms in the 14th and 15th centuries, but were not in general use until the 17th century. Thus the oldest coats of arms generally do not include a motto. Mottoes seldom form part of the grant of arms: Under most heraldic authorities, a motto is an optional component of the coat of arms, and can be added to or changed at will; many families have chosen not to display a motto.

Motto: Prenez en gré
Motto Translation: Take in good will.
