Who Is James Oglethrope?
Born on December 22, 1696, in London, England, James E. Oglethorpe went on to be elected to his country’s parliament in 1722, serving for more than three decades. He pushed for penal reform and an end to slavery and impressment. He travelled to America in 1733 and founded Savannah, the colony that would become Georgia. Returning to England in the mid-1740s, he died onJune 30, 1785.
The Colonization Of Georgia...
In the 1730s, England founded the last of its colonies in North America. The project was the brain child of James Oglethorpe, a former army officer. After Oglethorpe left the army, he devoted himself to helping the poor and debt-ridden people of London, whom he suggested settling in America. His choice of Georgia, named for the new King, was also motivated by the idea of creating a defensive buffer for South Carolina, an increasingly important colony with many potential enemies close by. These enemies included the Spanish in Florida, the French in Louisiana and along the Mississippi River, and these powers' Indian allies throughout the region
Colonization Of Georgia
James Edward Oglethorpe was born on December 22, 1696, in London, England; he was the tenth and last child. His parents were Eleanor and Theophilus Oglethorpe. Though frequently in London, the Oglethorpes maintained a large family estate in Godalming, a small Surrey town near London. Westbrook Manor was where young Oglethorpe grew up. His father owned other property in Godalming and the neighboring town of Haslemere, and the rent from these gave the Oglethorpes a comfortable life. Both Theophilus and Eleanor had long been interested in politics, and in 1698 voters of Haslemere elected Theophilus to the House of Commons. All three of his sons—including Oglethorpe—would later hold his seat.
