Admiral of the Fleet Sir Chaloner Ogle (1681–1750) was a British naval commander during the War of the Austrian Succession.

Naval career

Born the son of John Ogle, a Newcastle barrister,[1] Ogle came from the Kirkley Hall branch of the prominent Northumbrian Ogle family of Northumberland.[2] He joined the Royal Navy as a volunteer in 1697.[1]

In 1721 he commanded HMS Swallow, leading the fleet in action off the West African coast.[1] In 1722 he defeated the pirate fleet of Bartholomew Roberts in the Battle of Cape Lopez, for which success he was awarded a knighthood.[1]

In 1741 as Rear Admiral of the Blue he led the British attack on three forts at Cartagena, Colombia during a disastrous campaign in the War of Jenkins' Ear.[1]

In 1742 he was accused of an alleged assault upon Edward Trelawny, Governor of Jamaica[3] but his career survived and he was appointed Admiral of the White and in 1749 he became Admiral of the Fleet.[1]

He was also Member of Parliament for Rochester from 1746 to 1750.[4]


The IGI records that Challoner Ogle was married to Henrietta Isaacson on 16 October 1714, in Saint James' Church, Duke's Place, London, England. Other sources assert that he was first married in 1726 to Henrietta Issacson; and secondly in 1737 to his cousin Isabella Ogle,[1] daughter of Nathaniel Ogle of Kirkley Hall. Thus he was the great uncle of his brother-in-law and namesake, Admiral Sir Chaloner Ogle, 1726 – 1816.

His home was latterly at Gifford Lodge in Twickenham in Middlesex where he died in 1750 without issue.
