Remarks

The Ogle family had acquired lands in Huyton in the early sixteenth century and also occupied lands in Whiston and Sutton. They were lords of the manor of Whiston. They had also leased the Prescot Hall estate, which adjoined  their Whiston lands, from the earl of Derby, who had himself leased the estate from King’s College. However, in 1558 Lord Derby granted another lease of the Prescot Hall estate, this time to John Layton, and this may have been the cause of the tithe dispute.

Edward Ogle died in December 1567.
