He apprenticed to a dance master and was soon reputed to be one of the best masters in the profession. He suffered a number of misfortunes in his lifetime, including being shipwrecked in his passage from Ireland while fleeing the outbreak of the Civil War in 1641 and losing his house in the Great Fire of London in 1666. He translated, edited, and published many books, including several illustrated geographical works. These included America and ones on China, Japan, Africa, Asia, and Britain. In 1671, Ogilby published the 'America', translated from Arnold Montanus' Dutch text.
