  • Notes 
    • From Ogle and Bothal, citation details below:

      In 1388, James, earl of Douglas, suddenly entered England and advanced as far as Brancepeth in Durham. Ou returning he lay three days before Newcastle, during which several skirmishes took place. The Scots then marched to Ponteland, took the castle there and then marched on to Otterburn where they encamped and entrenched themselves. The English, under Sir Henry Percy, surnamed Hotspur, after a forced march of thirty-six hours, attacked them on the 19th of August; Sir Henry had divided his forces into two parts, one was to attack, and the other, under Sir Maurice, called Sir Maw with the Red Mane, and Sir Robert Ogle, was to chase. Just however, as the English had carelessly thought they had gained a victory they were charged by the earl of Douglas, who fell, but the Scots rallying defeated the English, Sir Henry Percy and his brother, Sir Robert Ogle, and many others being taken prisoners. Sir Robert Angle of Bothal and Ogle, as he has been called, is described in the ballad of the battle as follows: —

      The felde was his all yf yt he were take
      The Vmfrevyle, Grey, Ogle and Redmayne
      Held the felde hole yt might so for his sake
      And knew nothyng witherwarde he was gayn.

      From Complete Peerage X:26-7:

      Sir Robert de Ogle, knight, grandson and heir, being son and heir of Robert de Ogle and Ellen Bertram, was born at Callerton, and baptised at Ponteland, 8 December 1353. Having sued his mother in Chancery in 1373 for his maintenance for 5 years, he proved his age in 1374, and had a writ of livery of the lands of his paternal grandfather and grandmother 4 February 1374/5. In January 1375/6 he had licence for divine service in the oratory in the chapel near Ogle Castle. He served under Sir Thomas de Felton in the expedition to Brittany in 1380, and was knighted before 12 March 1385/6. He took part in the battle of Otterburn in August 1388, and was appointed on various commissions in Northumberland in 1392. In 1393 he indented as Keeper of Berwick and the East March, 30 April to May. With his wife Joan he had an indult, December 1396, for a portable altar, and in February 1397/8 was chief commissioner to audit the accounts of the officials of Waldby, late Archbishop of York, who died deeply in debt to the King. He was one of six summoned from Northumberland to attend the King in Council at Westminster on 16 August 1401. He married, before 6 September 1372, Joan, 3rd daughter and coheir of Sir Alan de Heton. He died 31 October 1409 (j). His widow died 12 October 1416.

      (j) Writ dated 8 Nov 1409; inquisition made 17 Apr following. On the other hand, his M.I. at Hexham; and--depicting the arms--and his will, dated there 7 Feb "1410", respectively show his death in 1410 and 1411, modern style. He desired to be buried at Whalton, but was actually interred at Hexham. He had younger sons: (i) John, upon whom, taking the name of Bertram, Bothal was settled by his grandmother, and, after her death, by his father, Feb 1405/6; (ii) Alexander, upon whom his father and mother settled the Hepple inheritance. Alexander predeceased his mother (dspm). Robert made a settlement on his daughters Margery and Elizabeth as early as 29 Sep 1374. A daughter called Margaret (query the said Margery) m. Robert, son of Nicholas de Raymes.
