This Member may have been the John Sagher of ‘Bourig’ who received a royal pardon in October 1411 at the special request of Henry IV’s queen, Joan of Navarre. He was then excused all the ‘treasons, insurrections, felonies and trespasses’ committed by him before September 1403, which suggests that he may perhaps have taken part in the rebellion staged by the Percys and their followers against the King. But the question of identity still remains unclear, and nothing is known for certain about him.
