Early life

The Ogle family was quite prominent for many centuries in Newcastle-upon-Tyne, Northumberland, England, dating from the medieval period. Born in Annapolis, Maryland, Benjamin Ogle was the son of former Provincial governor, Samuel Ogle and Anne Tasker.[1] Upon his death in 1752, Samuel left his estate to his 3 year old son Benjamin, but appointed Benjamin Tasker, Sr. as his son's guardian and to manage the estate. Tasker sent young Ogle to England when he was 10 to further his education.[2]

Ogle returned to Maryland in 1770 to find Tasker's daughters (his aunts) were occupying his father's estate, the Annapolis (which is now Alumni House for the United States Naval Academy). Ogle took possession of the Belair Mansion in 1774 after a lawsuit to reclaim his father's home from the Tasker family.[3][4]
