Hugh Bogle, Esqr, of Kingston, Jamaica, married Agnes Bogle, the daughter of the late Mr. Michael Bogle, merchant of Glasgow, in Glasgow on 17/12/1799. Hugh Bogle was "of Calderbank" and George was "later of Rosemount". Hugh was a brother of Robert Bogle of Gilmorehill and therefore first cousin of Archibald Bogle (q.v.).
