Samuel Ogle
Birth: 1694
Northumberland, England
Death: May 3, 1752
Anne Arundel County
Maryland, USA

Provincial Governor of Maryland. He was commissioned Provincial Governor of Maryland on December 7, 1731 by Charles Calvert, 5th Baron Baltimore and arrived in Maryland in 1732. Under his rule a border dispute broke out with Pennsylvania which became known as Cresap's War. He appealed for a resolution to King George II in which Charles Calvert, 5th Baron of Baltimore arrived in December of 1732 and took charge of the colony. He retired from the Governorship but was reappointed in 1773. He was dispatched back to England in 1740 and returned in 1747 where he was appointed governor once again. Upon his return he introduced thoroughbred racing to the country by bringing back with him two famous English horses which were the first English-bred thoroughbreds introduced into America. He held the first English-style race in Annapolis, Maryland in 1745. His Belair Mansion has been recognized as being the only great colonial estates where race horse breeding has been conducted during three centuries. He died while still holding office as Governor. (bio by: C)
