Born around 1822, PaulBogle who lived in Stony Gut, St. Thomas was a Baptist Deacon. He was a firm political adherent of George William Gordon.

"Service to Humanity Means Sacrifice"
- PaulBogle

Though he was generally regarded as a peaceful man who shunned violence, he was a leader and organizer, he spent time in educating and training his followers.

Poverty and injustice in the society and lack of public confidence in the central authority urged him to lead a protest march to the Morant Bay Court-house on October 11, 1865.

For his role in the 1865 Morant Bay Rebellion, he was captured and hanged on October 24, 1865 by the United Kingdom (Jamaica was a British colony at that time), but his forceful demonstration achieved it’s objectives.

It paved the way for the establishment of just practices in the courts and it brought about a change in official attitude which made possible the social and economic betterment of the people.

He was later named a National Hero of Jamaica with the title Rt. Excellent Paul Bogle. He is depicted on the heads side of the Jamaican 10-cent coin.
