Vágrant. n.s. [vagant, Fr.] A sturdy beggar; wanderer; vagabond; man unsettled in habitation. In an ill sense.
Vagrants and outlaws shall offend thy view,
Train'd to assault, and disciplin'd to kill. Prior.
You'll not the progress of your atoms stay,
Nor to collect the vagrants find a way. Blackmore.
To relieve the helpless poor; to make sturdy vagrants relieve themselves; to hinder idle hands from being mischievous, are things of evident use. F. Atterbury.
Ye vagrants of the sky,
To right or left, unheeded, take your way. Pope.
