“Thomas Saggers Jun was charged with using a greyhound to take a hare at Sandon.”
On the 8th he had been seen on with a greyhound and another dog on Mr. Bewers’ land. Thomas had “turned the attention of the dog to a hare”, encouraging it to chase it, and then he had taken the hare. “It being proved he had no authority for coursing he was convicted and fined £5 and costs.”
To course is to use greyhounds to hunt small game by sight (not scent) – for sport. I did have to look that up in the Oxford.
I believe this is Thomas (Junior), the son of Thomas and Mary (Turner) Saggers, thus the grandson of Thomas Saggers and Rosetta (Dorman) Saggers. I believe I have seen the father, Thomas, named as Thomas The Younger.
In 1861 the family was living at Great Baddow with four other children, Roberts, Sarah Ann, Rosetta and Harriet. I believe though that Thomas Senior was married to two Marys: Mary Turner – mother of Thomas and Robert and Mary Daniels – mother of Sarah Ann, Rosetta and Harriet.

The Guild of One-Name Studies will be at the FamilyRoots Seminar in Calgary, September 23, 2017, sponsored by the Alberta Family Histories Society.
Jim Benedict, a Guild Regional Representative, will be manning the Guild display table during the breaks, and would be delighted to meet with you and discuss your surname research, and the benefits of Guild membership. If you have any interest in the Guild’s Members’ Websites Project (the MWP), where the Guild can host, support and preserve your surname study website, as with this Saggers One-Name Study website, then you will want to drop by the table. As the TNG coordinator for the MWP, Jim will have the site on display. You will get a chance to see a live demonstration of members’ websites, ask any questions and get guidance on using this fantastic service of the Guild.
If you have not heard about the conference, it promises to be very worthwhile. An all-day conference, with optional dinner the Friday evening before, the day will have 12 sessions in three concurrent streams: for beginners, experienced and advanced family history researchers. Featured speakers are – Dave Obee, John Althouse, and Lesley Anderson. Check out the full conference information and registration at http://afhs.ab.ca/familyroots/.

The new Saggers Virtual Cemetery at Find A Grave currently links 159 Find A Grave Memorials for those with the Saggers or Sagger surname. Over the next months, I’ll add close family members to the Virtual Cemetery as relatives are identified.
And here on the Saggers Families website, I’ll soon be adding additional information on the military Memorials.
Included are burials in cemeteries or memorials in Australia, Belgium, Burma, Canada, Egypt, England, France, Greece, Ireland, Israel, Italy, Libya and New Zealand, Scotland, South Africa and the United States.
Here is the list of cemeteries included right now, listed by country.
I do wonder if these Saggers “inheritances” were ever claimed?
