Oglethorpe Won Re-election to Parliament

Though he was in America, James Oglethorpe won reelection to his Haslemere seat in the House of Commons - thanks to efforts on Oglethorpe’s behalf by Speaker of the House Arthur Onslow. Speaker Onslow was from Guilford, a Surrey town near Oglethorpe’s hometown of Godalming.
