James Edward Oglethorpe was a British general, member of parliament, philanthropist, and founder of the colony of Georgia. As a social reformer, he hoped to resettle Britain's poor, especially those in debtors' prisons, in the New World. Oglethorpe was born in Surrey, the son of Sir Theophilus Oglethorpe of Westbrook Place, Godalming. He entered Corpus Christi College, Oxford in 1714, but in the same year left to join the army of Prince Eugene of Savoy.show more
