James Edward Oglethorpe, MP for Haslemere 1722-1754
Oglethorpe is best remembered in history as the founder of the American state of Georgia.
The following biography is taken from the February 1955 issue of the Australian monthly
magazine "Parade." Some of the descriptions of life in 18th century debtors' prisons are
quite graphic in nature.
'London sweltered in a heatwave in the summer of 1729 when the iron gates of the Fleet
Debtors' Prison clanged shut behind a knot of ashen-faced M.P.s who, gasping and stumbling,
emerged into the ill-paved street with kerchiefs to their noses. They were so shocked by the
horrors they had encountered in the tour of the stinking, disease-ridden warren that three
were violently ill, while another collapsed to the cobbles in a fainting fit. One alone was calm.
He was James Edward Oglethorpe, gentleman, soldier of fortune, rake turned reformer. He was
already planning a sizzling report which he determined should sweep away the atrocities he
had just witnessed and which he had been fighting for years.
'In the resultant popular outcry, rapacious gaolers who had battened cruelly on their victims
were sacked and stripped of their loot. Sadistic tortures, including the weights and the thumb-
screws, were banned. The merciless money laws, from which even small debtors had no
appeal, were overhauled. Reform, however, came all too slowly for the crusading Oglethorpe,
who chafed at Parliament's cumbersome delays. Britain's 30,000 debtors were still dying like
flies from starvation and disease, so he founded a new colony in America and sent freed
debtors there in shiploads to start a new and happier life. This fired the imagination even of
Britain's stuffy Hanoverian monarch, George II, who gave his name and blessing to the
fantastic debtors' Utopia, which is now the prosperous American State of Georgia.
'James Edward Oglethorpe, the man who at one sweep effected wide prison reforms and
founded a flourishing colony, came from a line of champions of forlorn causes. His earliest
known ancestor, Ligulfe, Thane of Oglethorpe, was one of the last English chieftain to match
his strength against the invading William of Normandy. His father, Sir Theophilus Oglethorpe,
was equerry and crony of James II, and helped the half-crazed king to escape to France as
"Mr. Jones" when William of Orange landed to dethrone the Stuarts. When Whitehall Palace
caught fire in 1691 and the nightgowned Queen Mary, William of Orange's spouse, fled alone
into St.James' Park, Sir Theophilus and a friend, says a contemporary report, tried to shove
her back into the flames.
'Oglethorpe's early years are shrouded in mystery. Two dates are given for his birth. 1696 is
officially recognised. The other, 1688, is linked with a legend which declares he was actually
a son of James II, substituted for her own dying child by Lady Oglethorpe, who thus protected
him during the rebellion. Another legend avers that young Oglethorpe concealed the Old
Pretender for years at Westbrook, the Oglethorpe family home in Surrey, where the Pretender's
ghost is said still to stalk the battlements on stormy nights.
'Whatever his antecedents, Eton and Oxford knew young Oglethorpe as an inveterate haunter
of gaming-rooms, cockpits and taverns. Tired of student brawling, he joined the army and
served under Marlborough in Flanders, becoming captain-lieutenant in the Queen's Guards. He
spent a riotous year among the ladies and at the gaming-tables in Paris, plotting wildly with
the Old Pretender to tumble Anne off the throne and set the Stuarts back.
'Finally he joined the hunchbacked military genius, Prince Eugene of Savoy, for his Turkish
campaign. He won the hunchback's lasting friendship at a banquet given by the boorish Duke
of Wurttemberg who, losing his temper in an argument, rudely flipped wine from his beaker
into the cocksparrow young Briton's face. Grinning engagingly, Oglethorpe sloshed a whole
glassful into the duke's pock-marked visage, remarking, "That was a good joke, but we do it
much better in England." It was a tribute to his skill as a swordsman that no one dared to
challenge him. He fought with distinction at Belgrade, where Eugene's 40,000 mercenaries
saved Christendom by smashing 150,000 Turkish warriors [16 August 1717]. Eugene offered
him a marshal's baton, which he refused.
'It was, therefore, a lusty young firebrand who arrived home to manage the Oglethorpe
estates. Spoiling for a fight, he flung himself into the shady game of politics, then notorious
for graft and intrigue. In 1722 he won his father's old Commons seat of Haslemere. For some
months he chafed against the inactivity of a backbencher. Then he found what he was looking
for - a crusade.
'An impractical artist friend, Robert Castell, was gaoled in the Fleet debtors' prison for debt [in
1729]. Too proud to seek aid, Castell was fleeced of his last few pounds by the rascally gaol
governor, Bambridge, whose practice was to allow prisoners to redeem themselves from foetid,
lice-infested cells by cash payments. When Castell could disgorge no more, he was man-
handled to a filthy "sponging-house" where scores of smallpox and typhus victims lay dead or
dying. Castell caught one of the plagues and died in torment.
'Oglethorpe was unable to control his rage when he went to claim his friend's corpse. He gave
the villainous Bambridge a thrashing in his own lair, and promised dire retribution to his whole
rapacious crew. So persistent were his anti-prison tirades in the House that a committee of
14, headed by Oglethorpe, was appointed to investigate the three debtors' gaols - the Fleet,
Marshalsea and King's Bench.
'Horrors beyond the imagination of the ordinary citizen were dragged to light. Though the now-
fawning Bambridge tried to steer his unwelcome visitors through a few hastily-scoured cells
and corridors, Oglethorpe defied him and prodded his unwilling aides into every nook and
cranny of the reeking hell-hole. Hearing groans from a locked cell, Oglethorpe found a half-
crazed, emaciated wreck who had been held for eight months after he should have been
released for the few coppers they could squeeze from his relatives. When they received the
the order for release, his gaolers merely gave him a savage whipping and bundled him unto a
dripping underground vault among a heap of fever victims awaiting the death-cart.
'The dying wretch thought the investigation committee were his torturers returning, and his
heart "raced so madly from panic" that blood rushed from mouth and nose. Oglethorpe found
52 cases of illegal detention in the Fleet prison alone. In another cell he discovered one of his
own corporals who, falsely accused of theft and cleared by the jury, had been seized and
gaoled as a debtor by Bambridge for gaol fees incurred during detention.
'Refusing to pay the governor's blood-money, he was manacled with too-small fetters. The
irons cut deep into his flesh and his legs and arms were gangrenous from suppurating wounds.
A broken-down and singularly ill-named baronet, Sir William Rich, was found prostrate in a
double set of irons and encrusted sores and ulcers. Although Oglethorpe struck his fetters
and ordered his release, Rich was again secretly detained and treated to the "iron collar,"
a fiendish instrument designed to squeeze the neck. The ring was tightened until his eyes
started from his head and blood poured from ears and nose.
'Scores who refused to pay the illegal levies demanded by Bambridge were left manacled for
weeks in reeking, airless dungeons over a filthy sewer where bodies were tossed for the
coroner's cursory inspection. Most of the prison rations were seized and sold by Bambridge
and his pirates, with the result that hundreds of prisoners were pitiful skeletons. Ill or
pregnant women were left untended to die of neglect and despair. Many had lost their
memory. Others were raving lunatics. Vice and perversion flourished unchecked.
'The great Dr. Johnson computed that "in 1759 there were still 20,000 imprisoned debtors and
that one in four died every year" from the iniquitous treatment they received. Vacant gaol
governorships, Oglethorpe revealed, were hawked for sale to the highest bidder. Lord
Clarendon "sold" the Fleet to a rogue named John Huggins for 5000. Bambridge got it for the
same sum. Salary and "perks" were liberal and in addition the luckless debtors were fleeced
of all they owned.
'The revelations almost led to riots in the streets of London. The immortal caricaturist and
engraver Hogarth added fuel to the flames with his sketches of squalid life in prisons and
madhouses. Parliament was forced to act, but owing to the opposition of Oglethorpe's enemies
and the automatic reactions of the diehards to all reform, particularly where it affected money,
legislation was slow. It was then that the impetuous Oglethorpe whisked a shipload of
unfortunates off to found the colony of Georgia.
'Parliament belatedly voted him 10,000 to help create the colony, which was also to act as a
buffer state between English settlements and French and Spanish colonies in America. Wealthy
philanthropists and investors contributed substantial sums to what they considered a promising
experiment. Oglethorpe went with the first shipload as Governor. Unwilling to entrust funds or
material to men and women who, through recklessness, shiftlessness or weakness, had landed
in a debtors' gaol, he organised the farms on the collective principle under his own control, and
the new colony began to prosper.
'Not only English debtors but political and religious refugees from all over Europe flocked there.
Oglethorpe had his colony so well organised that when the Spanish attacked from Florida he
was able to repulse them with brilliant success. Oglethorpe's enemies continued to attack him
in his absence. He was branded as a rabble-rouser and accused of squandering the trust
money. Returning indignantly to England, he was mobbed by thousands of cheering indigents.
'When the Georgia charter ran out, Oglethorpe surrendered it to the Crown as an English
province and accepted the rank of general in the English army. Unfortunately, Bonny Prince
Charlie, last of the Stuarts, to whom Oglethorpe was still vaguely loyal, chose that time to
land in Scotland and invade England. Oglethorpe's forces met him at Clifton in 1745 and took a
trouncing. His enemies claimed Oglethorpe had not tried to defeat the prince and the veteran
colonial administrator was hauled before fore a court-martial and tried for treason. He was
acquitted.
'In his later years he turned to literature. He was one of the first to realise the rising genius of
the great Dr. Johnson, whom he helped. He was the crony of Oliver Goldsmith, the first of the
novelists. and Edmund Burke, a statesman, orator, and one of the earliest champions for the
emancipation of slaves. Oglethorpe died peacefully in 1785.'
Gabriel Price, MP for Hemsworth 1931-1934
The following report is taken from the 'Manchester Guardian' of 26 March 1934:-
'Mr. Gabriel Price, Labour M.P. for the Hemsworth Division of Yorkshire, was drowned in the
River Calder at Mirfield on Saturday. Mr. Price, who had been in ill-health for a long time, was
walking with his wife towards the railway station when a train came through a cutting. Mr.
Price immediately began to run, shouting to his wife to extend her holiday and saying that he
would return later. His wife followed him down the hill but by the time she had reached the
junction of the road and the river Mr. Price had apparently jumped over a fence and was
struggling in the water. Attempts at rescue failed, but later the body was recovered by Police
Constable Cooper, of Mirfield.
'Mr. James Price, the son with whom Mr. Gabriel Price had been staying at Mirfield, told a
reporter yesterday that his father had refused to take the advice of a specialist and go for a
holiday. "My father left me at a quarter past eight," he said, "with my mother. I had asked him
to wait for me to accompany them but he said he had to return to South Elmsall to answer
his letters and record his vote in the parish council election. He said he would be pleased to
meet my brother and a friend later at Wakefield to go to a Rugby League football match."
'Mr. Sidney Price, the other son, said: "My father died because he refused to think of himself
and sacrificed himself on the altar of duty. Last October he addressed a number of meetings
in Cumberland and caught a chill. He returned here and apparently recovered, but for some
time past he has been suffering from neurasthenia and insomnia. A specialist had urged him to
take a rest or go for a cruise but he refused as he had too many public engagements to fulfil."
'Mrs. Price said yesterday: "My husband had been attended by doctors for some time as he
suffered very badly from neurasthenia and insomnia. We had persuaded him to go to the Isle of
Wight for a rest next week and we left my son's house soon after eight o'clock to go to South
Elmsall. As we were coming down a hill a train rushed through the cutting. My husband began
to run, shouting to me to go back and stay a little longer and that he would come back later.
He disappeared round the corner and when I arrived he was in the water, shouting for
someone to pull him out. I could not reach him and so ran for help."
'Mrs. Price's cries attracted the attention of Mr. Smithson, of Ravensthorpe, and other
persons, who ran to the bank, but the Calder was running swiftly and they were unable to
render any assistance. Mr. Price had drifted out towards the centre of the river and was
sinking.
'Mr. Price, who was born in 1879, was a checkweighman at the Frickley Colliery, and his whole
life had been devoted to the service of the miners. He was the son of a miner and at the age
of twelve started work in the pit himself at Hemsworth Colliery. He represented his branch on
the council of the Yorkshire Miners' Association and was a member of the West Riding County
Council and the West Riding Education Committee. He was also an alderman and a county
magistrate.'
