The St Leger was devised by Anthony St Leger, an army officer and politician who lived near Doncaster. It was initially referred to as "A Sweepstake of 25 Guineas".
The inaugural running was held at Cantley Common on 24 September 1776.
The title St Leger Stakes was decided at a dinner party held in 1776 at The Red Lion Inn located in the Market Place, Doncaster to discuss the following year's race. It was suggested that it should be called the Rockingham Stakes in honour of the host, the Marquess of Rockingham, but the Marquess proposed that it should be named instead after Anthony St Leger.

I am researing the name St. Leger from Doneraile (co. Cork) and from the rest of Ireland, too.

Have been reseaching this name for the past 25 years plus so have accummulated a LARGE database of St. Legers.

Would welcome hearing from anyone else who is researching their St. Leger roots.

Am trying to find out about  Honora St. Ledger who may have been born in 1857 at Headford, Galway.  Do you happen to have any record of this lady who ends up, I believe, as Honora Collins.

Family rumour is that she fell on hard times and the family did not want to know but we all realise that this could be complete bunkem !!!

Hello,

I am researching John and Catharine St. Leger from Clonroche, Wexford, who emigrated with their children, William, Catharine, Mary Ann in 1852 on the ship William Rathbone out of Liverpool to Bucks County, Pennsylvania, US.  Any info is appreciated.  Thank you.
