The Hagger name appears 916 time in the 1881 census with Haggar appearing 451 times. Between 1837 and 1983 4548 Hagger and 1794 Haggar births were registered. It should be noted that Hagger and Haggar are completely interchangeable with the same person being shown as both in different records.
There were just 83 Hagar mainly in the West Riding of Yorkshire (28) with 15 in Kent. There were 95 Hager and these were mainly in Surrey (27).
Looking back to 1841 and considering all variants there were 250 in Hertfordshire with 173 in Essex, 149 in Suffolk, 131 in Middlesex and 104 in Cambridgeshire with a total count of 923.
At February 2018 we had virtually 51,565 records in our master database with a considerable amount of data captured but not yet cleansed and entered. We have over 200 family trees either constructed or partly constructed, a number of them have know interconnections. We only have limited data for non UK records entered into our database but we are gradually adding to this.
Please contact Peter Hagger who will be pleased to assist with look ups in the database.
