About meCuthbert Ogle (d. 23 April 1755), an English musician who emigrated to Williamsburg, Virginia in the early months of 1755, advertised that he would be teaching music there, and then promptly died. Little is known about Ogle: Maurer Maurer writes of the man "It seems impossible to determine anything definite about Cuthbert Ogle's origin, his first appearance in Virginia, the extent of his musical training, or the nature of his private life and affairs."
About my libraryThe musical library of Cuthbert Ogle is listed in its entirety in the appraisement of his estate, made at Williamsburg in September 1755 by well-known musician Peter Pelham, Charles Jones and John Low. Ogle's books, combined with his other possessions (which included a Fiddle & Case, Harpsichord and 2 Hammers, 1 Plain Gold Watch, 1 Spy Glass, 1/2 lb Green Tea, some Fiddle strings and an Old Hatt), were appraised at £69 3s. 4d.
