LOGGAGE, n.1 In phr. foggage and loggage. ? Cf. Foggage.Sc. 1729 W. Macintosh Essay on Inclosing 56:
How many good Estates in Scotland, the Consumption of what they call Foggage and Loggage, has rendered of much less Value than formerly they were? And any of their plow'd fields the richer? That as many, yea more Acres about that Estate, as good Soil in its Nature, yea many better, have been swarded, dug up, and carried on to cover a worse Soil.

[Form and meaning both doubtful. The word might possibly be a rather forced usage of Loggage, n.2, implying the removal of the Foggage from the soil and its subsequent transport to another place.]
