(1) William Oglethorpe of Oglethorpe (a 1585)
  (1) www.geocities.com/Heartland/Fields/2179/Oglethorpe.html (referred to below as "The Web Site") shows a William, apparently this William (as he married Anne Southeby and had a son William who married Susan Sutton), as son of Robert Oglethorpe of Bardsey (b c1528, d after 1608, 2nd Baron of the Exchequer in Ireland) who is shown as descended from the above William son of John. In case there has been confusion, we distinguish below what comes from Visitation and what comes from The Web Site.
(2) FMG (Continuation ('Hunter's Pedigrees', 1936), 'Oglethorpe of Oglethorpe and Wakefield', p105+), which supports some of the following, starts with this William but shows only his marriage to Anne Sotheby.
(3) The Web Site shows that William married someone (d before 1586) before Anne Southeby and had a daughter Eleanor/Helen (who married William Oglethorpe of Upton) and he then married Anne Southeby in 1586 who was mother of his other children. Visitation shows William married first to Anne Southeby (mother of John, William, Ann & Helen (added later)) and then to Julian Mallory (mother of Ann). Provisionally, we show as follows (dates from The Web Site & FMG):
