Sir John Ogle, from Lincolnshire, was a distant relative to the Ogle family of Whiston. He was an officer during Sir Francis Vere's campaign in the Netherlands, and lost his left eye to a pistol ball during the siege of Ostend. It is believed that this painting originates from the period of the campaign as it is in the style of the school of the Dutch artist, Jan Anthonisz. van Ravesteyn, but may not have been painted by him, maybe a student.

It came into the ownership of Prescot Parish Church due to the Ogle family connections as Sir john Ogle of Whiston was a major contributor to the rebuild of the church in 1610. Sir John Ogle was buried in Westminster Abbey.
