EAGRE (a word of obscure origin; the earliest form seems to be higre, Latinized as higra, which William of Malmesbury gives as the name of the bore in the Severn; the New English Dictionary rejects the usual derivations from the O. Eng. eagor or egos, which is seen in compounds meaning "flood," and also the connexion with the Norse sea-god Aegir ), a tide wave of great height rushing up an estuary (see Bore), used locally of the Humber and Trent.
