    • Ogle Castle (grid reference NZ14057908) is a former fortified manor house at Ogle, near Whalton, Northumberland. It is a Scheduled Ancient Monument and a Grade I listed building.[1]

      William the Conqueror granted a deed to Humphrey de Hoggell (Ogle) to enjoy "all the liberties and royalties of his manor" after the conquest.[2] The Ogle family held the estate from before the Norman Conquest until 1597 when it passed by marriage to the Cavendish family and later to Hollis. Sir Robert Ogle was granted a licence to crenellate in 1341. David II of Scotland was brought here having been captured at the Battle of Neville's Cross in 1346.

      Today only the west wing remains from that period. This was the tower house of the medieval tower which had a projecting latrine. Still showing on the western and northern sides are parts of a double moat around a platform 45M across. The manor building that makes up most of today's still standing Ogle Castle appears to be 16th and 17th century work that the tower house was later incorporated into.

      Sir Robert Ogle III[1]

      b. c.1370[2] 1379;[3] 1380/6.[1]

      d. 1436/7[3][4]

      Sir Robert Ogle III (b. 1380/6),[2][1] succeeded his father in 1409 ... but he isn't remembered for being fair.[5][6] Along with 200 men, he stole Bothal castle and manor from his younger brother John Bertram. [6][7]

      It wasn't just a simple walk-in, either. Robert and his forces attacked the castle for four days in 1410.[7][1]

      One chronicler said Robert was jealous,[7] while Parliament still refers to Bertram as the family "favorite."[5]

      To say the least, Robert's actions were frowned upon. John complained to Parliament, and Robert had to go before the King to explain himself ... then give the property back![6][7] But at least some redemption was bound to happen...

      According to Ogle & Engler (2012), Robert was the more powerful of the two sons, and had the favor of the king. After he, "satisfied the council," his "lands were immediately restored." That same month, he landed on the commission looking for a truce with Scotland.

      Well after the family feud, Robert helped the Earl of Northumberland capture James, King of Scotland in 1423. Three years later, he was Northumberland's Sheriff,[6][8] and in 1434 he and his son Robert, 1st Baron Ogle, were both serving as commissioners to keep the peace with Scotland.[9]

      By 1436/7, Robert died,[6][4] and was succeeded by his son and heir ... Sir Robert Ogle who became the first Baron, Lord Ogle.[6]
