Baron Ogle

Baron Ogle is an abeyant title in the Peerage of England. It was created in 1461 for Robert Ogle. It fell into abeyance in 1691. The Ogles were a prominent Northumbrian family from before the time of the Norman Conquest. They settled at Ogle, Northumberland and in 1341 were granted a licence to fortify their manor house which became known as Ogle Castle. The family included seven Medieval Barons. Their estates fell by marriage to the Cavendish family (later Dukes of Newcastle) following the death of the 7th Baron in 1597.

Later junior branches of the family owned estates at Causey Park, Eglingham Hall and Kirkley Hall (see Ogle family) and provided eight Baronets (see Ogle Baronets)

Bess of Hardwick

Elizabeth Cavendish, later Elizabeth Talbot, Countess of Shrewsbury (c. 1527 – 13 February 1608), known as Bess of Hardwick (née Elizabeth Hardwick), of Hardwick Hall in Derbyshire, was a notable figure of Elizabethan English society. By a series of well-made marriages, she rose to the highest levels of English nobility and became enormously wealthy. Bess was a shrewd business woman, increasing her assets with business interests including mines and glass-making workshops.

She was married four times, firstly to Robert Barlow, who died aged about 14 or 15 on 24 December 1544; secondly to the courtier Sir William Cavendish; thirdly to Sir William St Loe; and lastly to George Talbot, 6th Earl of Shrewsbury, sometime keeper to the captive Mary, Queen of Scots. An accomplished needlewoman, Bess joined her husband's captive charge at Chatsworth House for extended periods in 1569, 1570, and 1571, during which time they worked together on the Oxburgh Hangings.

In 1601, Bess ordered an inventory of the household furnishings including textiles at her three properties at Chatsworth, Hardwick and Chelsea, which survives, and in her will she bequeathed these items to her heirs to be preserved in perpetuity. The 400-year-old collection, now known as the Hardwick Hall textiles, is the largest collection of tapestry, embroidery, canvaswork, and other textiles to have been preserved by a single private family. Bess is also well known for her building projects, the most famous of which are Chatsworth, now the seat of the Dukes of Devonshire (whose family name is Cavendish as they descend from the children of her second marriage), and Hardwick Hall.

Dean of Birmingham

The Dean of Birmingham is the senior member of clergy responsible for St. Philip's Cathedral in Birmingham, England. Before 2000 the post was designated provost, which was the equivalent of a dean but used in the case of pro-cathedrals, such as Birmingham, which had originally been built as parish churches.

Dean of Winchester

The Dean of Winchester is the head of the Chapter of Winchester Cathedral in the city of Winchester, England, in the Diocese of Winchester. Appointment is by the Crown. The first incumbent was the last Prior, William Kingsmill, Catherine Ogle was installed in February 2017.

Diocese of Winchester

The Diocese of Winchester forms part of the Province of Canterbury of the Church of England. Founded in 676, it is one of the older dioceses in England. It once covered Wessex, many times its present size which is today most of the historic enlarged version of Hampshire and the Channel Islands.

Duke of Newcastle

Duke of Newcastle upon Tyne is a title that has been created three times. The related title Duke of Newcastle-under-Lyme has been created once to provide a slightly more remote special remainder. The title first was conferred in 1665 when William Cavendish was made Duke of Newcastle upon Tyne. He was a prominent Royalist commander in the Civil War. He had already been elevated as Viscount Mansfield in 1620, Baron Cavendish of Bolsover and Earl of Newcastle upon Tyne in 1621 and Marquess of the latter in 1643, and was created Earl of Ogle as main subsidiary title to the dukedom to be used as a courtesy style for his heir presumptive.

The titles became extinct in 1988, a year that saw the deaths of the distantly related ninth and tenth Dukes of Newcastle under Lyme.

James Atwell

The Very Reverend James Edgar Atwell, MA, BD (born 3 June 1946) is a retired priest and former Dean of Winchester. He was educated at Dauntsey's and Exeter College, Oxford. He went to theological college at Cuddesdon and was ordained in 1971. He began his ordained ministry with a curacy at St John the Evangelist, East Dulwich after which he was curate at Church of St Mary the Great, Cambridge and Chaplain at Jesus College, Cambridge. He has a Master of Arts (MA Oxon) and a Bachelor of Divinity (BD).

From Cambridge he became Vicar of St Lawrence, Towcester and then Provost of St Edmundsbury Cathedral before becoming (automatically, due to the Cathedrals Measure) Dean of St Edmundsbury on 19 November 2000. Having received Letters Patent from Elizabeth II, he was installed in Winchester Cathedral at a service on Lady day, 25 March 2006.On 12 February 2016, it was announced that James was to retire as Dean of Winchester effective 14 July.

James Lemen

James Lemen Sr. (1760 – January 8, 1823) was an American justice of the peace and minister who was a leader of the anti-slavery movement in Indiana Territory in the early nineteenth century.

Born near Harper's Ferry, Virginia (now in West Virginia), in colonial times, he served a two-year enlistment in the American Revolutionary War. He married Catherine Ogle, from the family whose name is perpetuated in that of Ogle County, Illinois. Lemen was a protégé of Thomas Jefferson.Most historians reject as unsubstantiated the claim there was a "Jefferson-Lemen Secret Anti-Slavery Compact," whereby Jefferson secretly asked Lemen to move to Illinois (then Indiana Territory), and to take up the anti-slavery cause there.Lemen became a leader of the anti-slavery movement in Indiana Territory, and influenced the Illinois' first "Free State" Constitution, which was framed in 1818 and preserved in 1824.

In a letter to Lemen's son, Rev James Lemen Jr., dated March 2, 1857, Abraham Lincoln praises Lemen senior's anti-slavery work. Lemen, as Jefferson's agent in Illinois, founded the anti-slavery churches, which in Lincoln's view, "set in motion the forces which finally made Illinois a free state."In Appendix II of "The Collected Works of Abraham Lincoln" this letter is listed as a forgery.

Ogle Castle

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.After the Norman Conquest in 1066, Humphrey de Hoggell was granted rights over the manor of Ogle.

Northumberland was then a border county and in 1341, Sir Robert Ogle was allowed a licence to crenellate or fortify the manor; in 1346, David II of Scotland was held prisoner here after his capture at the Battle of Neville's Cross.The last direct descendant in the senior line, Catherine Ogle (ca 1568-1629), married Sir Charles Cavendish and after her death, the manor passed to their son, William Cavendish, later 1st Duke of Newcastle. Cavendish was the senior Royalist in the North during the 1642-1646 First English Civil War and spent much of his fortune raising troops for Charles I; after defeat at Marston Moor in 1644, he went into exile in Europe, returning only after the 1660 Restoration.Parliament sold Ogle Castle in 1653 to James Moseley, who repaired some of the damage done during the civil wars but the original house was extensively rebuilt after it was returned to William in 1660. The modern building largely dates from that period, retaining only the mediaeval tower house and its projecting latrine, as well as showing parts of a double moat on the western and northern sides.In the early 19th century, an East Indiaman ship was named Ogle Castle; it was wrecked on the Goodwin Sands on 3 November 1825, with the loss of over 100 crew members.

Ogle family

The Ogle family was prominent landed gentry in Northumberland from before the time of the Norman Conquest. The earliest appearances of the family name were written Hoggel, Oggehill, Ogille and Oghill.

The Pilgrims' School

The Pilgrims' School is a boys' preparatory school and cathedral school in the cathedral city of Winchester, Hampshire, England. The official date of establishment is unknown but historical records indicate that choristers of Winchester Cathedral's renowned choir have been educated in the Close as early the 7th century. As it also educates choristers of the Winchester College Chapel Choir, the school maintains close links with the college. It is not to be confused with the Pilgrim School, Bedford, built in 1962 (formerly called "Pilgrim Grammar School").

The school hall contains England's oldest surviving wood double hammer-beamed roof, which used to accommodate the pilgrims travelling to the cathedral.

Tony Iommi

Anthony Frank Iommi (; born 19 February 1948) is an English guitarist, songwriter and producer. He was lead guitarist and one of the four founder members of the heavy metal band Black Sabbath. He was the band's primary composer and sole continual member for nearly five decades.

While working in a factory as a teenager, Iommi lost the tips of the middle and ring fingers of his right hand in an accident, an event which crucially affected his playing style. Iommi briefly left Black Sabbath's forerunner, Earth, in 1968 to join Jethro Tull, after which he returned to Black Sabbath in 1969, recording their self-titled debut album. In 2000, he released his first solo album Iommi, followed by 2005's Fused, which featured his former bandmate Glenn Hughes. After releasing Fused, he formed Heaven & Hell, which disbanded after Ronnie James Dio's death in 2010.

Iommi was ranked number 25 in Rolling Stone magazine's list of the "100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time".

In 2011, he published his autobiography, entitled Iron Man: My Journey through Heaven and Hell with Black Sabbath.

He was born into the wealthy Cavendish family at Handsworth in the West Riding of Yorkshire; it had a good relationship with the ruling Stuart monarchy and began to gain prominence after he was invested as a Knight of the Bath, and then inherited his father's Northern England estates.

At first a courtier of James I of England, Cavendish would later strike up friendships with Charles I of England and his wife Henrietta Maria for whom he hosted lavish banquets. He was created Marquess of Newcastle-upon-Tyne and entrusted with the education of the royal couple's son, the future Charles II of England. Cavendish was a staunch royalist helping to fund the king in his Bishops' Wars; and then during the English Civil War he was made a general for the struggle in the North of England against the roundheads. In 1645 he married the English poet, dramatist, philosopher, and natural scientist Margaret Lucas. After the defeat at Marston Moor, Cavendish went into self-imposed exile, only returning with the English Restoration when he was created a duke.
