Captain Nathaniel Ogle came from an extensive family based in Northumberland and Hampshire, a branch of which occupied Ogle House in Southampton from 1792 to 1869 (see below). Together with William Alloft Summers he operated the Millbrook foundry in Foundry Lane from 1831. They had previously been based at Whitechapel in London where they had built steam engines, boilers and generators for propelling ships and locomotives. Ogle was last recorded at Millbrook in the 1834 directory after which the firm styled itself W. A. Summers and Co and eventually became Day, Summers & Co. It is not known if Ogle died in 1834 or simply left Southampton.
