Title: The Oglander Collection

Estate and family records of the Oglander family of Nunwell, Isle of Wight


The Oglander family had estates in Dorset and the Isle of Wight, and are known to have been on the island since at least the early 12th century. The collections main interest centres on the papers of Sir John Oglander which are especially rich from the 1620s to 1640s, and include common place books, and documents relating to his duties as a deputy-lieutenant, and as a sheriff. The latter include ship money returns for 1637, muster rolls for the 1620s and 1630s, and papers relating to the billeting of Scottish troops on the Isle of Wight, also in the 1620's. The shrievalty papers contain material of interest relating to mainland Hampshire.


In the early 19th century Captain Henry Oglander, an advocate of army reform, was stationed overseas both in the Mediterranean and in India. His correspondence from 1807-39, is an underused source potentially of considerable interest to students of the history of the army in India.
