New Georgia Encyclopedia: James Edward Oglethorpe (1696-1785) (2646 words)
Oglethorpe and several colleagues from the jails committee, notably John Lord Viscount Percival (later the first earl of Egmont), began exploring the possibility of creating a new colony in America.
He was ordered to take a force to the north of England to engage the invaders, but because of controversy centering upon his strategy in the campaign, Oglethorpe was subjected to a court martial.
He was buried in a vault beneath the chancel floor of the Parish Church of All Saints, which stands immediately adjacent to Cranham Hall.

The potatoes of Prince Edward Island are famous for their excellence, not only in the British Provinces, but also in the United States; beans and peas, and all sorts of esculents and culinary vegetables grow to perfection, and yield large returns.
