1 HE Collection of Vocabularies and Glossaries which Wright in his 
day prepared, contained pre-eminently Latin- Anglo-Saxon and Latin- 
Old-English works of this kind. Wright added, however, several 
works in which the English stood very much in the background 
(as in VIII and X pp. 121139, and 142175 J ), or only in entirely 
scattered references (as in VII pp. 96121 1). Indeed in Vol. II 
two Old- German Vocabularies were incorporated. For the purpose 
of restoring a greater symmetry I have left out the five articles above- 
named. On the other hand, I took up anew three others; viz. 2., 7. 
and 15, transcripts of which were most kindly placed at my disposal. 
It did not fall within the plan of the book to give a complete Collection 
of all the Anglo-Saxon and Old-English Vocabularies and Glossaries 
remaining in England. The articles already incorporated by Wright have- 
been compared anew with the MSS., as far as theMSS. were accessible. 

As for lexical purposes it -is most desirable to have an 
alphabetically arranged Index (Wright has only one arranged 
according to the subjects for his Vol. I 1 ) such a one has been 
prepared by several of my pupils. 

The explanatory and critical remarks of Wright I have reprinted 
and added my own, which I marked with "R. W." Especially in 
the Anglo-Saxon portion occur many references, which would have

been put in the alphabetical index, if I had earlier decided to 
add the index. 

A mistake slipped into the superscription of No. 4. It was 
entitled according to Wright as Archbishop JElfric's Vocabulary, 
however, according to Dietrich's excellent investigation, the author 
was Abbot ^Elfric. In the table of contents I have thus also 
changed it. 

Only the agreeable duty remains to me to thank most heartily 
those who aided me in the elaboration of my work by the loan of 
transcripts; namely, Prof. Dr. J. Zupitza (No. 1), Miss Lucie 
Toulmin Smith (Nos. 2 1 and 7), the Librarian, Dr. A. Holder (No. 9) 
and Dr. W. Aldis Wright (No. 15). 


LEIPSIC, January 1884.

No. 2 could not be made to Zupitza's Supplement (Haupt's Zeitschrift p. 223 226). 


THE Public is indebted for the following volume to the liberality 
and public spirit of Mr. Joseph Mayer, whose name is now so well 
known to all who interest themselves in the Archaeology of this 
country. Its design originated in a social conversation between 
Mr. Mayer and myself, and we have endeavoured in it to make 
available to labourers in the field of antiquarian research and 
investigation a class of documents which, though they have been 
hitherto almost overlooked, form a rich treasury of information on 
almost every subject connected with the Archaeology of the Middle 
Ages. They have been furnished by a number of contemporary 
manuscripts, scattered through various libraries in this country and 
abroad. Of one of the most valuable of the later vocabularies 
here printed, the original is preserved in Mr. Mayer's own collection; 
and for the communication and permission to print another the 
curious and interesting pictorial vocabulary which closes the series 
we owe our sincere thanks to the Lord Londesborough, of whose 
collection the manuscript forms a part. As far as regards my own 
labours, I will only say, that I have endeavoured to make the texts, 
which are arranged in strict chronological order, as nearly as is 
consistent with the duty of an editor, fac-similes of those of the 
original manuscripts. In fact, their very errors and corruptions

form no unimportant facts in the history of education and know- 
ledge, and they have been carefully preserved as, under these cir- 
cumstances, an integral part of the text itself. Nevertheless, when- 
ever I have been able to meet with several copies of the same 
tract, I have collated them, and made use of any additional matter 
they furnished, without interfering with the text of that which I have 
chosen as the best. It will be quite evident to anybody who 
glances at the contents of the present volume, that it is susceptible 
of annotations which might be made to swell out several such 
volumes. I therefore beg to state that I have had no intention of 
loading the volume with elaborate annotations; but I have hoped 
that a few explanatory and illustrative notes would make the work 
more popular, and would render it more useful to the general 
reader, and their pretensions go no further. 



September, 1857. 


IHE Treatises which form the present volume are interesting in several 
points of view. Their importance in a philological sense, as monuments of 
the languages which prevailed at different periods in this island, is evident 
at the first glance, and need not be dilated upon. They are curious records 
of the history of Education; and, above all, they are filled with invaluable 
materials for illustrating the conditions and manners of our forefathers at 
various periods of their history, as well as the Antiquities of the Middle 
Ages in general. The history of Education is a subject which is now 
deservedly attracting more attention than was formerly given to it. It is 
certainly not uninteresting to trace the various efforts which were made, 
at all periods of the middle ages, to simplify and render popular the forms 
of elementary instruction, and the several modifications which these forms 

The groundwork of all school-learning was the knowledge of the Latin 
language; and the first tasks of the young scholar were to learn the 
elements of the Latin grammar, to commit to memory words and their 
meanings, and to practise conversation in the Latin tongue. It was this 
practical application of the language which contributed very largely to its 
corruption, for the scholar began by making himself acquainted not with 
the pure Latin diction of classical books, but with a nomenclature of 
words many of them extremely barbarous which it had then become 
customary to apply to objects of ordinary use and occurence. The lessons 
were given by word of mouth, as boys could not in those times be accom- 
modated with books ; but they had slates, or roughly made tablets (tabulce), 
on which they wrote down the lesson in grammar, or the portion of vocabu- 
lary, from the lips of the master, and, after committing it to memory, 

erased the writing, to make place for another. The teacher had necessarily 
his own written exemplar of an elementary Latin grammar, as well as his 
own written vocabulary of words, from which he read, interpreted, and 
explained. The old illuminations of manuscripts give us not unfrequently 
pictures of the interior of the school, in which we see the scholars arranged, 
with their tablets, before or round the teacher, who is dictating to them. 
In the earlier periods of Christianity among the Anglo-Saxons, the study 
of the Latin language was pursued with extraordinary zeal and pro- 
portionate success, and our island was celebrated for its learned men; but 
as time passed on, various circumstances combined to produce a general 
neglect of learning, so that king Alfred complained, in the latter part of 
the ninth century, that very few of his subjects could translate from Latin 
into their mother tongue. "So clean," he said, "was teaching ruined among 
the English people, that there were very few even of the ecclesiastical 
order, southward of the Humber, who could understand their service in 
English, or declare forth an epistle out of Latin into English ; and I think 
there were not many beyond Humber." It may be observed, that in the 
earlier period, the Northumbrian kingdom was the great seat of learning. 
"So few such there were," Alfred adds, "that I cannot think of a single 
instance to the south of the Thames when I began to reign. To God 
Almighty be thanks that we now have any teacher in stall." 1 

Some of the causes of this decadence in the study of Latin among 
the Anglo-Saxons belonged probably to a change which had taken place 
in the social condition of the country, and were not to be overcome. Our 
great-minded Anglo-Saxon king intimates that his countrymen began to 
prefer books translated into or compiled in their own language to Latin 
compositions, and his own example in labouring upon such translations, or 
causing others to labour upon them, contributed no doubt to give per- 
manence to this very natural taste. Nevertheless, the study of Latin was 
revived in England with some success during the tenth century, and it was 
increased by the intercourse between the English and continental scholars. 
Still this study was by no means general, and at the end of this century 
and beginning of the next, the labours of the two Alfrics in translating 
and compiling in English show sufficiently the neglect of the study of Latin

even among the English clergy, which is confirmed by the complaints of 
the Norman ecclesiastics after the conquest. It is to these two distin- 
guished scholars that we owe the first elementary school-books that are 
known to have existed in the English language a Latin grammar (com- 
piled and translated from Donatus and Priscian) and Latin-English voca- 

It is singular how soon our forefathers began to exercise their ingenuity 
in arranging their elementary books and more especially the vocabu- 
laries in forms calculated to be most attractive to the learner, or to 
enable him more easily to commit them to memory. The first of the 
treatises printed in the present volume, which had passed successively 
through the hands of the two Alfrics, the archbishop and his disciple, is 
compiled in the form of an interesting and very amusing dialogue, so con- 
trived as to embody a large number of the words of common occurrence 
in the ordinary relations of life. It is written in Latin, but accompanied 
with a continuous interlinear gloss in Anglo-Saxon, precisely on the plan 
of the modern elementary books of the Hamiltonian system of teaching, 
to which it has been more than once compared; but it possessed one 
striking difference, which must not be overlooked that the old Anglo- 
Saxon treatise was glossed for the assistance of the teacher, and not, as 
in the modern books of this description, for the learner. In fact, it is 
evident that at this time the schoolmasters themselves were very imper- 
fectly acquainted with the Latin language, and that they found it necessary 
to have books in which the English meaning was written above or beside 
the Latin word, to enable them to explain it to their scholars. It was 
this same ignorance which rendered it necessary to have vocabularies, or 
lists of Latin words, with the translation attached to them such as those 
which form the bulk of the present volume. In the earlier and better 
period, no doubt the teacher had such lists merely in Latin, or glossed 
only in cases of difficulty, and he was sufficiently learned in the language 
to explain them himself; but now the schoolmaster required to be reminded 
himself of the meaning of the Latin word. Nor was this all; for, besides 
the very incorrect and corrupt manner in which the words are frequently 
written in these manuscript vocabularies, in many instances the Latin word 
is wrongly interpreted. Several instances of such blunders may be pointed 
out in Alfric's "Colloquy;" 1 and others occur frequently in the Anglo- 
Saxon vocabularies, some of which are indicated in the notes. 

1 Some of these are curious. At p. 95 instead of an adverb. On p. 97, the 
1. 10 occurs the adverb solum, which the merchant speaks of selling merchandise 
glossator has translated as an adjective, carius, dearer, than he bought it; but 


These vocabularies appear to have been numerous during the later 
Anglo-Saxon period, and those which remain differ considerably from each 
other. I have included in the present volume all that are now known to 
exist. The last of them brings us down to at least the middle of the 
twelfth century, after which we lose sight of similar vocabularies, until we 
reach the fifteenth century. 

The Anglo-Norman period presents us with a new description of voca- 
bulary, in which the words, still kept together in their different classes, 
are collected into a sort of continuous discourse. Of these, the earliest, 
and in many respects the most curious, is that by the celebrated scholar, 
Alexander Neckam, in which the principal operations and professions of 
life are enumerated and described in a familiar style. Neckam, singularly 
enough for an ecclesiastic, begins with the kitchen, describes its furniture 
and implements and their several uses, and treats of the articles of food 
and of the methods of cooking them. He then turns to the possessor of 
the house, describes his dress and accoutrements, when remaining at home 
or when riding abroad, and introduces us in the sequel to his chamber 
and to its furniture. The chamber-maid is next introduced to us, with 
her household employments; and we are taken to the poultry -yard, with a 
chapter on the cooking of poultry and fish, and on the characteristics of 
good wine. "We are next taught how to build a feudal castle, to fortify 
it, to store and to defend it; and this leads us naturally to the subject of 
war in general, and to arms, armour, and soldiers. From this we return 
to matters of a more domestic character to the barn, the poultry -yard, 
and the stable, and to that important occupation of mediaeval domestic 
life, weaving. The occupations of the country follow, and the author 
explains the construction of carts and waggons, the process of building an 
ordinary house, and its parts, the various implements and operations 
of farming, and the construction and use of the plough. "We turn rather 
abruptly from agriculture to navigation, and are instructed in the different 
sorts of ships, and in their parts and the articles with which they were 
usually stored. The tools, qualifications, and duties of the mediaeval scribe, 
the operations of the goldsmith, and a copious enumeration of ecclesiastical 
furniture, complete this curious treatise. 

The similar treatise of John de Garlande, composed in the earlier half 
of the following century, differs very much from its predecessor in details 

the Anglo-Saxon interpreter has trans- speaking of the fisherman's art, he evi- 

lated as though it meant more beloved, dently did not know whether the Latin 

evidently not understanding the phrase hamus meant the hook or the bait, 
to which it belongs. Again, on p. 93, 


and arrangement. Its author occupies himself more with the objects which 
meet the eye in the interior of a great city (Paris), than with feudal or 
agricultural life. After giving, by way of introduction, a description of 
the human body and its various parts and members, he proceeds with a 
long list of trades and manufactures, and the various articles made or 
sold, such as the hawker who carried shoes and other articles of leather 
for sale on a pole, the girdle - makers , saddlers, shield -makers, buckle- 
makers, dealers in needles and other such articles, makers of bridles, 
hucksters, frobishers (or furbishers), the shopkeepers of the Grand -Pont, 
glovers, hatters, bowyers, makers of brooches and clasps, bell -makers, 
coblers, cordwainers, furriers, street criers, menders of cups, itinerant 
dealers in wine, sellers of cakes, regraters, bakers, pie -makers, cooks, 
changers, ininters, goldsmiths, clothiers, linen-drapers, apothecaries, car- 
penters, wheelwrights, cart-makers, millers, armourers, fullers, dyers, tanners, 
smiths. At this point, John de Grarlande interrupts his list of trades, to 
describe the house of a citizen (probus homo) and its furniture, which is 
followed by the different implements necessary to a scholar, or clerk. 
John de Gtarlande then proceeds to give the learner a list of his own 
wardrobe. A rather quaint account of the ecclesiastical library of a priest 
follows, with his apparel, and the implements belonging to the service of 
the church. We return from the church very abruptly to the stable, and 
then we have a list of the various domestic implements belonging to the 
mistress of the house, with descriptions of the occupations and employments 
peculiar to women weaving, needlework, &c. The account of a poultry- 
shop in the Parvis of Notre Dame furnishes an occasion for giving a list 
of domestic fowls; that of the fowler, for an enumeration of wild fowls; 
and that of the fisherman, for a list of fish. In the chapters following, 
John de Grarlande enumerates the domestic animals he had seen in the 
fields, the wild ones he had met with in the king's forest, the plants and 
herbs which grew in his own garden, the fruits in his orchard, and the 
shrubs in his grove; he gives a description of his own hall, an enumera- 
tion of the ships he had seen at sea, of the various tortures of the mar- 
tyrs which were suggested to his mind by the fear of shipwreck, of the 
jongleurs, minstrels, dancing girls, &c., who performed at the feasts of 
the rich, of the punishments reserved for sinners, and of the joys of the 

The close of the thirteenth century introduces us to a document of a 
novel character, although still similar in plan. It is written in verse, no 
doubt that it might be more easily carried in the memory, and, instead 
of being intended to teach the Latin language, its purpose was to teach 
French to the children of the English nobility and gentry. Accordingly, 


the text is written in French, with an interlinear gloss in English. This 
"treatise," as it is called, which was written by a man evidently of aristo- 
cratic blood, named "Walter de Biblesworth, marks a very important period 
in the history of the English language, as it shows that before the end 
of the thirteenth century, and perhaps subsequently to the barons' wars, 
that language had already become the mother tongue of the children of 
the Anglo-Norman nobility, and that they learnt it before they were 
taught French. 1 

The subjects in this treatise are arranged in an order which seems 
to have been considered most suitable to the class for which they were 
intended. Walter de Biblesworth begins with the child when new-born, 
tells how it is to be nursed and fed, and then proceeds to the description 
of the human body. In this and in other parts, the author labours to 
impress upon the learner the nice distinctions between words of nearly 
similar meaning, and the different meanings of words which are similar in 
sound, as well as the distinction of genders, which even then appears to 

1 I may perhaps be allowed to repeat 
here the remarks on this subject made in 
a paper on the History of the English 
Language, read before the Historic So- 
ciety of Lancashire and Cheshire, and 
printed in their Transactions, vol. ix, p. 
150, 1857. I there said, "It was not 
only as the language of the Normans, but 
as that peculiarly of the feudal aristo- 
cracy in general, that French was intro- 
duced into England under "William the 
Conqueror; and it was in that character 
that it continued to be the language of 
the aristocracy until feudalism itself was 
broken down. It had ceased, however, 
to be exclusively their language in the 
thirteenth century. In the latter; years 
of that century, a tract or treatise was 
written in French or Anglo - Norman 
verse, forming a sort of vocabulary of 
that language, and designed expressly 
for the purpose of teaching it to child- 
ren. The number of copies of this tract 
still preserved in MS. show that it was 
a popular elementary book, and that 
it was in extensive use. The compiler 

was Walter de Biblesworth, a man known 
elsewhere as a writer of French verse, 
and apparently belonging himself to the 
aristocratic class; he was a friend of the 
great statesman of the reign of Edward I., 
Henry de Lacy, earl of Lincoln and Salis- 
bury, and compiled the treatise we are 
speaking of at the request of the lady Dio- 
nysia de Monchensey. Thus all the rela- 
tions of the author and of his book were 
of an aristocratic character. Now, Walter 
de Biblesworth states his object to be to 
instruct the rising generation in the pro- 
per use of the words of the French lan- 
guage, and especially in the correct ap- 
plication of the genders; and the French 
words are explained in English, implying 
thus that the learner was acquainted with 
the English language before he began to 
learn French. We thus ascertain the very 
important fact, that, before the end of 
the thirteenth century, the children of 
the aristocracy of England learnt English 
before they were instructed in any other 
language or, in other words, that Eng- 
lish had become their mother tongue." 


have presented a difficulty to the young beginner in the French language. 
The description of the body itself is followed by the process of clothing 
it, and by an enumeration of the various articles of apparel. The author 
then returns again to the manners of the child, and describes its proper 
diet. After some rather curious instructions for the proper and distinctive 
use of certain classes of words, we are taken to the barn, and the teacher 
describes the processes of thrashing, of converting corn into meal, of 
baking, of the cultivation of flax, and the various stages through which 
it went before it is converted into linen cloth, and of brewing, as well as 
of the character and effects of good ale. The scholar is next taken a-fish- 
ing, and the various characteristics of the country, with the phases of the 
weather, and the changes of season, are pointed out to 'him. The fine 
weather offers the occasion of another rural excursion, with a description 
of the flowers, the fruit and other trees, the birds, and the animals which 
are supposed to present themselves to his view. Rural occupations are 
next introduced, with full descriptions of a cart and a plough. Then we 
witness the building of a house, and the arrangements of its different parts, 
the domestic processes of lighting the fire, cooking the food, and placing 
it on the table, and the various articles of food and their arrangement. 
The whole closes with the description of a great feast. The notion of 
composing such vocabularies in verse was applied to Latin, as well as to 
French, an example of which will be found also in the present volume. 

During the fourteenth century, school teaching seems to have fallen 
greatly into neglect in this country, and we hardly find any manuscripts 
of these educational treatises between those of the thirteenth century and 
those of the fifteenth. In the latter century, however, a great movement 
took place, it was the age, especially, of founding grammar-schools, so 
many of which were re-founded at the dissolution of papal colleges under 
Edward VI. A' similar degradation, in fact, had taken place to that 
which we have remarked under the Anglo-Saxons, though the causes were 
not entirely the same. The influence of the great development of learning 
in the twelfth century, and the example of the able and elegant Latin 
writers whom that age had produced, extended over at least a portion of 
the thirteenth century; but before the end of that century, the priest was 
already gaining the victory over the school-master, and the power of the 
universities was yielding to that of the Popish church. During the two 
following centuries, learning was reduced almost to its lowest degree; and 
this became so apparent, that an effort was made to raise it by striking 
at what was supposed to be the root of the evil the want or the 
inefficiency of the elementary schools. Those who undertook the task ot 
reformers, however, mistook the cause of the evil, and did not understand 


that the Middle Ages were approaching their end, and that there was no 
remedy for the restoration of forms and principles which were expiring 
from their own exhaustion. Nevertheless, the effort seems to have been 
made with earnestness, and caused, in the fifteenth century, a considerable 
extension in the lower grades of scholastic education. The manuscripts 
of grammatical treatises of school-books, in fact now become extremely 
numerous. Latin-English vocabularies are also not uncommon during this 
period, and I have given three in the present volume one from a manu- 
script in the British Museum, and the two others from private collections. 
The last of these, and apparently the latest in date but it is not very 
easy to distinguish nicely the distinctive dates of this particular class of 
manuscripts during the fifteenth century presents a new peculiarity, it 
is illustrated with rude pen-and-ink drawings in the margin of many of 
the articles enumerated in the text of the vocabulary. These illustrations, 
we should imagine, were designed to assist in fixing the attention of the 
scholar on his task, and it thus, as the latest of these attempts at improve- 
ment, forms an appropriate conclusion to our volume. It shows us, 
moreover, how little of novelty there is in most of the plans for simpli- 
fying school teaching in more modern times, for in these mediaeval treatises 
we meet with the prototypes of almost every scheme that has been pro- 
posed, from the more recent Hamiltonian system to the Orbis Sensualium 
Pictus of Comenius, which made so much noise by its novelty of plan in 
the earlier part of the seventeenth century. 

I can hardly be doubted that the manuscripts of these vocabularies 
of the fifteenth century were written by schoolmasters for their own use; 
and we cannot help being struck by the large proportion of barbarous 
Latin words which are introduced into them, and by the gross blunders 
with which they abound, especially in their orthography. Many of the 
Latin words are so disguised and corrupted, that we can hardly recognise 
them; and in some instances, the schoolmaster has actually mistaken the 
genders. It is thus clear that the schoolmasters of the fifteenth century 
were very imperfect scholars themselves, and we can easily understand 
how the Latinists of the old school fell into that barbarous style of writing 
which drew upon them the ridicule of the classical scholars after the revi- 
val of learning, as well as their hostility to that new light which exposed 
their defects. These vocabularies of the fifteenth century differ so entirely 
from each other, both in their general arrangement and in the words 
introduced under each head, that there seems little room for doubt that 
each schoolmaster compiled his own book. This circumstance has added 
extremely to their philological value, as the English words in each voca- 
bulary may be supposed to present some, at least, of the peculiarities of 


the dialect in which it was written. Through the preceding ages, the 
schoolmasters seem to have laboured under a difference of opinion as to 
the subject which had a claim to precedence of the others, and therefore 
ought to be placed at the head of the vocabulary. Archbishop Alfric 
gave the palm to agriculture, expressly in the Colloquy, and practically 
in his Vocabulary. 1 The vocabulary from the Brussels manuscript, 2 and 
that printed as the appendix to the present volume from the Cottonian 
MS, 3 begin with birds, for which it would be difficult to assign any reason. 
The Anglo-Saxon glossary of the other Cottonian manuscript, 4 with the 
semi -Saxon vocabulary abridged from it, 5 first present the more natural 
order of commencing with the Deity and with the human body and its 
parts. Alexander Neckam, as already stated, begins with the kitchen; 
but John de Garlande returns to the more natural order, beginning with 
man and the human body, which is adopted also in principle by Walter 
de Biblesworth. The vocabularies of the fifteenth century adopt, I think, 
invariably the human body as the leading subject, but they arrange the 
subjects which follow very diversely. Some of them, too, divide and 
subdivide these subjects under more numerous heads, or titles, than 

It is this circumstance of grouping the words under different heads 
which gives these vocabularies their value as illustrations of the conditions 
and manners of society. It is evident that the compiler gave, in each 
case, the names of all such things as habitually presented themselves to 
his view, or, in other words, that he presents us with an exact list and 
description of all the objects which were in use at the time he wrote, and 
no more. "We have, therefore, in each a sort of measure of the fashions, 
and comforts, and utilities of contemporary life, as well as in some cases 
of its sentiments. Thus, to begin with a man's habitation, his house 
the words whicTi describe the parts of the Anglo-Saxon house are few in 
number, a heal or hall, a bur or bedroom, and in some cases a cicen or 
kitchen, and the materials are chiefly beams of wood, laths, and plaister. 6 
But when we come to the vocabularies of the Anglo-Norman period, we 
soon find traces of that ostentation in domestic buildings which "William 
of Malmsbury assures us that the Normans introduced into this island; 
the house becomes more massive, and the rooms more numerous, and more 
diversified in their purposes. When we look at the furniture of the house, 
the difference is still more apparent. The description given by Alexander

Neckam of the hall, the chambers, the kitchen, and the other departments 
of the ordinary domestic establishment in the twelfth century, and the 
furniture of each, almost brings them before our eyes, and nothing could 
be more curious than the account which the same writer gives us of the 
process of building and storing a castle. The bare lists of names in 
the vocabularies of the fifteenth century are hardly less expressive. Thus, 
in the earliest of these vocabularies, we have the baronial hall furnished 
with its board and trestles, with which the table was laid out when 
wanted; the table dormant, or permanent table, which was probably even 
then an article of rarer occurrence; benches, as the ordinary seats; a long- 
settle to draw up to the fire, or to place on the dais, behind the high 
table; a chair, for ceremonious occasions, and a stool; a cushion for the 
chair; bankers and dossers, or carpets to lay over the principal seats; a 
screen; a basin and laver, for washing the hands of the guests; andirons 
to support the fire, tongs to arrange it, and bellows to raise it into a 
flame. 1 So again, in the subject of costume, we have the names of differ- 
ent articles of wearing apparel in use at successive periods, from the 
tenth century to the end of the thirteenth, and again during the fifteenth 
centuries. The same thing may be said of the weapons of war. Some of 
these documents, and especially the Dictionarius of John de Grarlande, 
throw an interesting light upon the trades and manufactures of the 
middle ages. Others show us the progress or rather the want of pro- 
gress of our forefathers in the practice of agriculture. In fact, there is 
hardly any subject connected with mediaeval life which does not receive 
some light from the tracts which are printed in the present volume. We 
here see our forefathers in all their positions of relationship, position, and 
occupation, from infancy to old age; we are introduced to the child in 
the nursery, and to the boy at his school; we see him in the clothes he 
wore, and with the arms that he carried to those constant wars which 
absorbed so much of mediaeval life; we learn in minute detail how he 
lived, what was his food and how it was prepared, and what he drank; 
we see the industrious house-wife attending to her domestic cares, or busied 
in her usual occupations of spinning and weaving; we witness the games 
and amusements of the different stages of life; and we even penetrate into 
the retired study of the scholar. 

Again, in these vocabularies the Archaeologist will find the only means 
of identifying by their proper names a multitude of utensils, which are 
elsewhere named without description, or of which he is acquainted with 
the forms, but knows not what to call them. This is especially the case

with a class of articles which have been during the last few years much 
more studied by antiquaries than formerly, such as mediaeval pottery, and 
vessels for the table of glass and metal, as well as articles of jewellery 
and other ornaments of the person. "We even gain instructive glances at 
notions which show us the progress of science, and at implements of 
various kinds which reveal to us important facts in the history of modern 

None of these, perhaps, is of more importance than the curious early 
allusion to the use of the mariner's compass by the navigators of the 
western seas. 1 It is well known to all readers that this invaluable inven- 
tion has been formerly supposed to have been brought from the East, 
and not to have been known in the "West until the fourteenth century, 
when it was used by the Italian mariners. Allusions to it have, however, 
been discovered by the students of mediaeval literature in works which 
date as far back as the thirteenth century. In the following pages, we 
find this invention not only alluded to in the twelfth century, but described 
in such a manner as to show that it was then absolutely in its infancy, and 
to leave little doubt of its having originated in the west. Alexander Neckam, 
in his treatise de Utensilibus, enumerates, among the ship's stores, a needle 
which was placed on a pivot, and when turned round and left to take its 
own position in repose, taught the sailors their way when the polar star 
was concealed from them by clouds or tempest. I have discovered a passage 
in another of Neckam's works, the inedited treatise de Naturis Eerum, which 
gives a more distinct account of this invention. "Mariners at sea," he says, 
"when through cloudy weather in the day which hides the sun, or through 
the darkness of the night, they lose the knowledge of the quarter of the 
world to which they are sailing, touch a needle with the magnet, which will 
turn round till, on its motion ceasing, its point will be directed towards the 
north." A comparison of these two passages seems to shew pretty clearly 
that at this time the navigators had no regular box for the compass, but 
that they merely carried with them a needle which had been touched with the 
magnet (perhaps sometimes they carried the magnet also, and touched the 
needle for the occasion), and that when they had to use it, they merely 
placed it upon some point, or pivot, on which it could turn with tolerable 
freedom, and then gave it a motion, and waited until it ceased moving. 
This mode of using the needle was, it must be confessed, rude enough. 
The passage in the treatise de Utensilibus contains one particular which 
is very obscure, as Neckam informs us that when the needle ceased moving 
it pointed towards the east (donee cuspis acus respiciat orientem); and as 

* In a treatise of Alexander Neckam de Utensilihus, 

all the manuscripts agree in this reading, and it is glossed by est, this 
must be the intention of the writer. I know no way of explaining this, 
unless it be by the supposition that, as in the twelfth century the East 
was the grand object of most voyages from this part of the world, an 
attempt had been made to improve the magnetic needle by adding to it 
a limb at right angles, which should point to the east when the needle 
itself pointed to the north; and that this was what Neckam calls the cu- 
spis acus. Between this time and the date whatever it may be of the 
poem, also quoted in my note on the passage of Neckam, which contains 
the first allusion to the mariner's compass in the tirteenth century, an 
attempt had been made to facilitate its use. 1 This was done by thrusting 
the needle through some substance which would not sink, and placing it 
upon the surface of water. Guiot de Provins, the author of the poem 
alluded to, calls this substance a festu, a stick or straw (the Latin festuca). 
The mariners, he tells us, have a contrivance depending on the qualities 
of the magnet, which cannot fail. The magnet, he adds, is an ugly 
brownish stone, to which iron is attracted. "After they have caused a 
needle to touch it, and placed it in a stick, they put it in the water, 
without anything more, and the stick keeps it on the surface. Then it 
turns its point towards the star with such certainty, that no man will 
ever have any doubt of it, nor will it ever for anything go false. When 
the sea is dark and hazy, that they can neither see star nor moon, they 
place a light by the needle, and then they have no fear of going wrong; 
towards the star goes the point, whereby the mariners have the knowledge 
to keep the right way. It is an art which cannot fail." According to 
another poet, the substance through which the needle was usually thrust 
was cork. He tells us that "the mariners who went to Friesland, or to 
Greece, or Acre, or Venice," were guided in their route by the polar star; 
but when at night, or in obscure weather, it was invisible, they discovered 
its position by the following contrivance: "They thrust a needle of iron 
through a piece of cork, so that it is almost buried in it, and then touch 
it with the loadstone; then they place it in a vessel full of water, so that 
no one pushes it out until the water is calm, for in whatever direction 
the point aims, there without doubt is the polar star." The MS. in which 
this latter poem was found is undoubtedly of the fourteenth century; but 

1 In this interval, we meet with an- Hier. cap. 89,) "Acus ferrea, postquam 

other slight but very curious allusion to adamantem continent, ad stellam septen- 

the use of the magnetic needle for pur- trionalem, quse velut axis firmamenti aliis 

poses of navigation. Jacques de Vitri, vergentibus non movetur, semper conver- 

one of the historians of the crusades, who titur; unde valde necessarius est navigan- 

wrote about the year 1218, says, (Hist. tibus in mari." 


tlie poem itself is evidently of somewhat older date of the beginning of 
that century, or not improbably of the century preceding. It is possible, 
therefore, that this rudely constructed mariner's compass may have con- 
tinued unimproved until the fourteenth century. 1 

The philologist will appreciate the tracts printed in the following 
pages as a continuous series of very valuable monuments of the languages 
spoken in our island during the Middle Ages. It is these vocabularies 
alone which have preserved from oblivion a very considerable and inter- 
esting portion of the Anglo-Saxon tongue, and without their assistance our 
Anglo-Saxon dictionaries would be far more imperfect than they are. 
I have endeavoured to collect together in the present volume all the 
Anglo-Saxon vocabularies that are known to exist, not only on account 
of their diversity, but because I believe that their individual utility will 
be increased by thus presenting them in a collective form. They represent 
the Anglo-Saxon language as it existed in the tenth and eleventh cen- 
turies ; and, as written no doubt in different places, they may possibly present 
some traces of the local dialects of that period. The curious semi -Saxon 
vocabulary is chiefly interesting as representing the Anglo-Saxon in its 
period of transition, when it was in a state of rapid decadence. The inter- 

1 This very curious poem, a sort of 
song, is preserved in a manuscript for- 
merly in the collection of M. Barrois, of 
Paris, and now in that of Lord Ashburn- 
ham. It was first pointed out by M. Fr. 
Michel, who printed the portion relating 
to the mariner's compass in the preface 
to his Lais inedits, Paris 1836. As this 
is now a rare boqk, I have thought it 
desirable to give here the whole passage. 
It is as follows: 

La tresmontaine est de tel guise, 
Qu'ele est el firmament asisse 
Ou ele luist et reflambie. 
Li maronier qui vont en ITrise, 
En Gresse, en Acre, ou en Venisse, 
Sevent par li toute la voie; 
Pour nule riens ne se desvoie, 
Tout jours se tient en une moie. 
Tant est de li grans li servisse, 
Se la mers est enflee ou koie 
Ja ne sera c'on ne le voie, 
Ne pour galerne ne pour bise. 

Pour biso ne pour autre afaire 
Ne laist sen dout servise a faire 
La tresmontaigne clere et pure; 
Les maroniers par son esclaire 
Jete souvent hors de contraire, 
Et de chemin les asseure. 
Et quant la nuis est trop oscure, 
S'est ele encor de tel nature, 
C'a 1'aimant fait le fer traire, 
Ci que par forche et par droiture, 
Et par ruille qui tous jours dure, 
Sevent le liu de son repaire. 

Son repaire sevent a route, 

Quant li tans n'a de clarte goute, 

Tout chil qui font cest maistrise, 

Qui une aguille de fer boute 

Si qu'ele pert presque toute 

En .i. poi de liege, et 1'atise 

A la pierre d'aimant bise; 

S'en .i. vaissel plain d' yave est mise, 

Si que nus hors ne la deboute, 

Si tost com 1'iave s'aserise; 

Car dons quel part la pointe vise, 

La tresmontaigne est la sans doute. 


linear gloss to Alexander Neckam, and the commentary on John de Gar- 
lande, 1 are most important monuments of the language which for a while 
usurped among our forefathers the place of the Anglo-Saxon, and which 
we know by the name of the Anglo-Norman. In the partial vocabulary 
of the names of plants, which follows them, we have the two languages in 
juxta-position, the Anglo-Saxon having then emerged from that state which 
has been termed semi -Saxon, and become early English. We are again 
introduced to the English language more generally by Walter de Bibles- 
worth, the interlinear gloss to whose treatise represents no doubt the 
English of the beginning of the fourteenth century. 1 All the subsequent 
vocabularies given here belong, as far as the language is concerned, to 
the fifteenth century. As written in different parts of the country, they 
bear evident marks of dialect; one of them the vocabulary in Latin 
verse is a very curious relic of the dialect of the "West of England at a 
period of which such remains are extremely rare.

1 Alfric of Canterbury, by whom this 
Colloquy was compiled, was commonly 
known by the title of Alfric the Grammarian, 
from the active part he took in the edu- 
cational movement of his time. He was 
for a short time bishop of Wilton, and 
in 995 succeeded Sigeric as archbishop of 
Canterbury. He died on the IGth of No- 
vember, 1006. The colloquy was probably 
composed in the earlier period of his life, 
when ho was a monk of Winchester. It 
was, as stated in the Latin title, enlarged 
and republished by Alfric Bata, a scholar 
under the archbishop when he taught in 
the schools at Winchester , and who is 
supposed to have died about the middle 
of the eleventh century. On both these 
writers, see my Biographia BritannicaLite- 
raria, Anglo-Saxon period, pp. 480 500. 
The enlarged edition of the colloquy, by 
Alfric Bata, seems to have so entirely super- 
seded the original, that it appears to be the 
only one now preserved. It is here printed 
from a manuscript in the British Museum, 
MS. Cotton. Tiberius A. Ill,, fol. 58, yo 

corrupte loquimur.

contemporary with Alfric Bata. The only 
other copy known Is preserved in a MS. 
in the Library of St. John's College, Ox- 
ford, in which the title, or rubric, is, 
Hanc sententiam Latini sermonis olim 
jElfricus abbas composuit, qui meus fuit 
magister, sed tamen ego &lfric Bata 
multas postea huic addidi appendices. 
Some additional words from the Oxford 
MS. are here printed within brackets. It 
will not escape remark, how much superior 
the sentiment which pervades this Anglo- 
Saxon tract is to that of the later me- 
diaeval treatises of the same description. 
It is impossible now to say which were 
the additions made by Alfric Bata to the 
original tract, but we may reasonably 
consider the whole as belonging to the 
tenth century. 

[Our text is based on a recent collation 
of Wright's print with the MS. On Alfric 
of Canterbury, see Dietrich in Zeitschrift 
fur histor. Theologie, 25. bd. pag. 487 et 
seqq.,-and 26. bd. pag. 163 et seqq. R W.]

2 Septem synaxes, the seven canonical 
hours, or, more literally according to the 
meaning of the word, the assemblies of 
the monks at those hours for the several 
services which belonged to them It is 
from this practice that the old Catholic 
service - books are called Hours (horae, 
heures), as containing the forms of service 
for the canonical hours of the day. (See 
further on.)

gave the first rank in worth and utility 

illustrated by implication here, where it 
is taken first in order of the occupations 
of men, and more directly further on, 
where its excellence is made the subject 
of discussion.

is no doubt an error for secer. R. W.

how little the practice of agriculture had 
changed in this country through many

1 The vocabulary, or glossary, of arch- 
bishop Alfric, is printed from one of the 
manuscripts of Junius, in the Bodleian 
Library at Oxford ; it usually follows Al- 
fric's Anglo-Saxon translation from the 
Latin Grammar of Priscian, which was 
the favourite class-book of the mediaeval 
schools. It was transcribed, not always 
correctly, by or for Junius, from a MS. 
in the possession of Reubens the painter, 
which is no longer known to exist. This 
manuscript, from an apparent reference 
to king Cnut, seems to be not older than 
the eleventh century, when Alfric's ori- 
ginal vocabulary was perhaps considerably 
modified, and this no doubt gave it the 
irregular character it here presents. The fol- 
lowing lines were prefixed to it in the MS : 

Praesulis hie redolent JElfrici lypsana summi, 

Qui rector patrice perstitit Angligence. 
Inter pontifices rittilans ecu mystica lampas, 

Defensor regni, necne salus populi. 
Heu nostram fera mors extinxit nempe lucernam, 

Heu nostri cecidit fons quoque consilii.

Circus, uel circulus, widj)e. 
10 Funiculus, uel funis, rap. 
ProscissiO) landbraece. 
Ouile, sceapahus. 

The object of these vocabularies was 
chiefly twofold ; first, to interpret Latin 
words to the Anglo-Saxon scholar, and 
secondly, to furnish him with the Latin 
words for the common objects of life. 
The vocabulary of Alfric would seem to 
have been originally arranged with a view 
to the latter object ; but we find the plan 
often broken into, by the introduction of 
words which have nothing to do with 
those which they immediately follow, and 
which appear, in some instances, to have 
been taken almost at hazard from an al- 
phabetical dictionary. In accordance with 
the character given to the science of agri- 
culture, in the colloquy, it takes the pre- 
cedence of all other subjects in the voca-

ration, tools necessary or useful to the 
agriculturist, which are not absolutely 
agricultural instruments.

here as applied to animals, and records

4 Quitting entirely the subject of agri-

introduces abruptly a number of words 
belonging to ecclesiastical, affairs, which 
are oddly enough mixed with a few words 
of a different description.

meaning that the preceding word is Greek, 
and not Latin.

1 The compiler has singularly mis- 
understood the Latin word aruspex. Dceg-- 
mcel-sceawere signifies literally one who 
announces or proclaims the hours of the 

2 Somner conjectures, perhaps rightly, 
that sehni is a corruption of obsceni. 

8 This, and the words which follow, 
were evidently taken from an alphabeti- 
cal glossary. It may perhaps be well to 
observe, with regard to them, as well as 
to many Latin words in this vocabulary, 
that the Anglo - Saxon scholars did not 
take their standard of Latin from the 
good classical writers, but they sought 
their words in the Origines of Isidore, 
and in writings of that class ; and they 
affected, especially, barbarous compounds 
from the Greek. The words, here given 
in alphabetical order, belong chiefly to 
these two classes. From this circum- 
stance, also, it appears that there are 

Acer, i. uehemens, strang. 

Achor, i. conturbatio, drefing. 

Actionator, folcgerefa. 

Acisculum, pic. 
5 Asscopa, flaxe oj){)e cylle.

Andreporesis, i. homo utriusque gene- 
ris, bseddel. 

Centaurus, uel ippocentaurus, healf 
15 man and healf hors. 

Onocentaurus, healf mann and healf 

Agrestis, wilde. 

Brunda, heortes heafod. 
20 Orbis, uel firmamentum, ymbhwerft. 

Rotella, uel orbiculus, lytel ymb- 


Imperator, Cesar, uel Augustus } 


Basileus, kining. 
Regillus, undercyning. 

Anglo-Saxon words in the vocabulary, at 
the meaning of which we can only guess, 
on account of the obscurity or corrupt- 
ness of the Latin equivalents. 

4 It is evident that the compiler of 
this part of the vocabulary mistook entirely 
the meaning of the Latin word, and 
imagined it to be anastrus, or something 
of that kind, meaning without stars. It 
is hardly necessary to say that dygelnys- 
sum means in secrecy, or in darkness. 

5 It will be seen at once that, in the 
list of political terms which follow, the 
compiler has sought to explain the words 
in use in the Roman empire by their 
nearest Anglo-Saxon equivalents, and not 
to give the Latin to the terms in use 
under the Anglo-Saxon government. Ne- 
vertheless, some of them are extremely 
curious as helping us to understand the 
real import of the Anglo-Saxon words.

plained as signifying a spider, and it con- 
tinued to be used apparently in that sense 
in English until the fifteenth century; yet 
in some cases this meaning appears to be 
doubtful. In an A.-S. MS. in the Cot- 
toman library, Vitel. C. III., we have 
drawings of the attercoppa of that period, 
which by no meaus agree with the notion 
of its being a spider. One of them is 
engraved in my Archaeological Album,

l From the list of vessels of different 
kinds, the vocabulary goes on to describe 
the house, with its parts and contents, 
beginning with the chamber, because pro- 
bably it was the room in which, being 
less public, most of the articles of any 
value were kept, and which had most 
furniture. Of the names here given to 
the chamber, the first, bedcofa, means 
literally a bed-recess, or bed-closet; for 
the bed -room was probably, in earlier 
times and in the ordinary houses, only a 
recess from the room in which the family 
lived. Bur is the bower of a later period,

1 This humble enumeration of the parts 
of a common dwelling-house, posts, rafters, 
laths, a roof, and a floor, (it is evidently 
supposed to be built of nothing but timber,) 
offers a strong contrast with the elaborate

us of the remarks of William of Malmes-

1 Literally, the water-dock, the beautiful

the leaves than to the flowers, to judge 
by this instance.

word punt, as a name for a sort of boat, 
is as well known among us in the present 
day, as it was among the Anglo-Saxons 
in the tenth century. It will be remarked 
how many of the Anglo - Saxon words, 
connected with shipping, have been pre- 
served in our navy.

1 This Vocabulary is said to have been 
found, as a sort of Supplement to the 
former, following it in the same manu- 
script, but with some intervening matter 
of another description. It seems, indeed, 
to have been the design of the compiler 
to give at more length some classes of 
words which are given less numerously 
in the vocabulary of Alfric, such as those 
belonging to the family and domestic 
relations, some classes of natural pheno- 
mena, naval terms, the names of various 
classes of buildings in use among the 
Romans, and a few words connected with 

the ancient religious belief Many words 
found in Alfric's vocabulary are repeated, 
but sometimes with variations in the in- 
terpretation, which are not without in- 

2 A bier. 

3 This word, which is of common use 
in Anglo-Saxon, and is evidently con- 
nected with the modern trough, was pre- 
served in the old English words throh, 
thrugh, and thurwe, signifying a coffin. 
A flat gravestone is still called a through 
in the dialects of the north of England.

1 Lenten, or Lent, remained long in 
the English language in its original signi- 
flcation of Spring. Thus, in a lyric com- 
position of the thirteenth century, (printed 
in Wright's Lyric Poetry of the Thirteenth 
Century, p. 48,) the approach of Spring 
is described as follows : 

Lenten ys come with love to toune, 
With blosmen ant with briddes roune, 
That al this blysse bryngeth.

a manuscript of the tenth century in the 
library of the British Museum, MS. Harl. 
No. 3;i 76. It is, in the original, a gloss- 
ary of difficult and uncommon Latin 
words, explained in Latin; but to the 
Latin explanations the compiler, or others 
who possessed the manuscript after him, 
have added a considerable number of in- 
terpretations in English of the time, or 
as it is now called technically by philo- 
logists, Anglo-Saxon. These I have ool-

1 This Vocabulary is taken from a 
manuscript in the British Museum (MS. 
Cotton., Cleopat. A. JIT , fol. 76, r), in 
a writing which may be of the latter 
part of the tenth, or of the earlier part 
of the eleventh century. It is preceded 
by a rather copious alphabetical dictionary, 
Latin and Anglo-Saxon, which breaks off 
abruptly by a mutilation of the manu- 
script with the letter P (No. XI in our 
volume) ; and it is followed by Anglo- 
Saxon glosses on Latin lives of saints 
(No. XII). The vocabulary itself, which 
presents some points of resemblance in 
its construction with that which is given 
in this volume as the Vocabulary of Arch- 
bishop Alfric, seems to end confusedly 

in a gloss of this description. It con- 
tains several curious and not very common 

2 The meaning of this word is: a young 
eagle, a hen-driver, cf. Leo pag. 3 ft 2, 48. 
Hosw. translates it: a brazen gate (!). R.W. 

3 The glossator meant to say, I suppose : 
Aneta ened, uel( 1) anax(for anas) ened.

Brussels No. 539 (now No. 1829). It 
contains fewer classes of words than the 
other vocabularies, and those words are 
chiefly on Natural History and Anatomy; 
but as far as it goes, it is more copious.

1 It was a common practice with the 
Anglo-Saxon teacher to add in the Latin 
book he read in the schools an interlinear 
gloss, explaining the more difficult words, 
the meanings of which he was perhaps 
afraid of forgetting himself. Some one 
of them, in the glossary here printed, has 
taken evidently from several of these 
glossed manuscripts, the glosses, and placed 
them in alphabetical order, for greater 
facility of reference. It is preserved in 
a manuscript apparently of the eleventh 
century, MS. Cotton., Cleopatra A, III. It 
is especially valuable for the number of 
words it contains which are not fonnd

4 The word Ambro, in this sense, is 
not used by any pure Latin writer, but 
appears to have arisen originally as a 
sort of popular, we might say slang, word. 
The grammarian Pompeius Festus (lib i. 
p. 69, Valpy's ed.), says that the Ambrones 
were a people of Gaul who lost their 
territory by a sudden inundation of the 
sea, and afterwards lived by robbery and 
plunder, until they were crushed by 
Marius ; hence it came into practice to 
call men who lived disgracefully Am- 
brones " Ambrones fuerunt gens quadam 
Gallica qui, subita inundatione mari* 
cum amisissent sedcs suas, rapinis ct 
pradationibus se suosque alere ccepcrunt;

eos, et Cimbros, Teutonosque, C. Marina 
delevit; ex quo tractum est, ut turpis 
mice, homines Ambrones dicerentur." At 
the beginning of the seventh century, 
Isidore gives the word in his Glosses 
with the somewhat more definite meaning 
of a waster, a consumer of patrimonies, 
a spendthrift, a rioter, a prodigal "Am- 
bro } devorator,consumptorpatrimoniorum, 
decoctor, luxuriosus, profuaus" It was 
in this signification that it came into 
medieval Latin, where it was synonymous 
with leccator. Since Ducange quotes as 
his authority for it Gildas, Aldhelm, Boni- 
face, and Geoffrey of Monmouth, it seems 
to have been a favourite word among the 
Anglo-Saxon Latinists. Cf. pag. 340 1. 2.

mean simply, made of pure gold. The 
compiler of these glosses seems to have 
been rather imperfectly acquainted with 
the meaning when he added the word 
auri. The Anglo - Saxon gloss is not 
quite clear perhaps it refers to the 
ornamentation of the dresses of people 
of high rank by thin plates of gold at- 
tached to them, as we know to have been 
the case among the Franks. (Cf. Bosw. 
D. 64v. R. W.)

9 This is another example qf the singul-

exhibited in the ordinary schools. Ar- 
citenens, the archer, was most probably, 
in the book from which this word was 
taken, used as an epithet of Apollo, but 
the writer of the gloss supposed it to be 
formed from arx, instead of arcus.

1 Caumeunicp represents a medieval 
Greek word, XKfJtevvittt, meaning a bed 
laid on the ground. It is found in the 
lives of saints. (Cf. pag. 10 1. 30. R. W.) 

2 Another medieval Greek word, xaxo- 
aq%eiyO 3 i. e. mala machinans. The 
Anglo-Saxons had rather a leaning to 
Greek words, which perhaps originated 
with Theodore of Canterbury in the se- 
venth century. (Cf. pag. 11 1. 11. R. W.) 

3 Breeding -panne is interpreted in the 
dictionaries a frying-pan; but iii medieval 
Latin we find the word cartagium used 
for a measure of corn or bread, un quar- 
tier, which is probably the meaning of 
the word here. 

4 Caragius is found in the theological 
writings of Bede and in other medieval 
writers in the sense of a sorcerer,

the light in which the Anglo-Saxou schol- 
ars looked upon many of the persons of 
classic fable, and we shall find other 
traces of it in these glosses. Of course, 
Cacus, the threeheaded son of Vulcan, is 
the individual here alluded to. (Cf. pag. 
379 1. 22. R. W.)

6 This word is added in another ink, 
as a correction ; for the Latin word is in

7 Literally to paint with red, referring 
to the painting of the face. We should 
say in English, to rouge. 

8 The glossator seems to have supposed 
that the name of the Floralia was derived, 
not from Flora, but from flos. 

9 A fuller is still called in Lancashire 
a walker.

1 This interpretation of malleolus is 
rather singular; the glossator evidently 
thought it was a mere diminutive of 
malleus, and in this sense the word was 
nsed in medieval Latin.

Opposite this word, in the margin, 
we have the letters reagV. Short abbre- 
viations of words thus placed are found 
not unfreqnently in the MS., which I have 
not printed because they seem to be mere 
private indications, perhaps, of a new book 
from which the glosses are taken, and they 

seem now to admit of no very intellig-

1 betlas has no Latin equivalent. 

R. W. 

3 No doubt, in the original text in which 
this \vord stood, it was notus, the south 
wind, and was glossed as such, but in the 
debased orthography of medieval Latin, 
another glossator seems to have supposed 
it might be nothus, a bastard. 

3 In the text where this gloss was found, 
the word abortare was no doubt used in 
a restricted sense, as applied to a cow, 
and hence it is interpreted, to miscalve. 

4 Another guess at the meaning of the 
word nectar.

1 This vocabulary of names of plants, 
evidently intended for the use of a medic- 
al practitioner, is preserved in a manu- 
script in the British Museum (MS. Harl. 
No. 978, fol. 2-1, vo), which appears to 
have been written in the period interven- 
ing between the battles of Lewes and 
Evesham, that is, in 1264 or 1265. The 
explanations of the Latin names are given 
in Anglo-Norman and in English; and in 
a few instances either the Anglo-Norman 
or English is omitted, and even in one 
or two cases the Latin. It is given here

as illustrating the lists of plants in the 
other vocabularies in the present volume. 
The history of the popular nomenclature 
of plants is a very curious and interesting 
subject ; and the manuscripts of all periods 
are very rich in materials for it. There 
is another list of names of plants in the 
three languages, resembling the one here 
printed, but arranged in alphabetical order, 
and rather more full, in a manuscript of 
the fourteenth century in the British Mu- 
seum, MS. Sloane, No. 5.

1 A common title for the vocabularies 
of the fifteenth century was that of No- 
minate, intimating that it was strictly a 
vocabulary of nouns, or names of things, 
classified under their different heads. The 
nominale here printed is taken from a 
very curious MS. of the fifteenth cen- 
tury, in the collection of Joseph Mayer, 
Esq., F.S.A., of Liverpool, which had no 
doubt belonged to the schoolmaster who 
taught with it, and remains in its origi- 
nal cover of vellum, contrived so as to 
roll up to make it more portable, with a

string attached, to tie it when rolled. It 
is unfortunately not quite complete, a leaf 
having been lost; but to judge from the 
part which remains, that which is lost was 
probably the least important part of it, 
and may be supplied from the complete 
vocabularies of the fifteenth century, printed 
in the present volume. 

2 Schede, or shed, was the common 
name for the separation of the hair on 
the top of the head, from which it spread 
down on either side (= Germ, schfitel.

pour out wine, is not an uncommon word 
in the old writers. In the metrical ro- 
mance of The Avowynge of King Arther 
(Robsoirs Metr. Rom., p. 80), we are told 
that there was at a great feast

1 Hek. A heck-door, in the north, is 
a door of which the lower part only is 
panelled, and the upper latticed. The 
word, which is not very common in this 
sense in old writers, occurs in the Townley 
Mysteries, which were written in the North 
(p. 100) 

Good wyff, open the hek, seys thou not what 

I bryng. 

It is explained in the glossary as ,,the 
inner door between the entry or lobby, 
and the house or kitchen."

in Lincolnshire. 

4 Burd-wogh, a wall, or partition, of 
boards a wainscot. We meet with the 
Anglo-Saxon bord-weall, used in much 
the same way. It may be here remarked

that the distinction between wall and 
wogh, in English, was the same as be- 
tween the original words in Anglo-Saxon, 
namely, the latter was applied peculiarly 
to the walls of a house, and the former 
to a wall of enclosure, or separation, in 
general. Thus, in the following lines, 
Gower, telling the story of Pyramus and 
Thisbe, informs us that they lived so 
close together, that the walls of their 
houses, and those of their court or yard, 
adjoined to each other 

Amonge the which, two there were 
Aboven all other noble and great, 
Dwellend tho within a strete 
So nigh to-gider, as it was sene, 
That there was nothing hem betwene, 
But wowe to wowe and walle to walle.

1 These popular names of the fingers

Halliwell (Diet of Arch. Words) from a 
MS. of the fifteenth century in the Uni- 
versity Library, Cambridge (Ff. v. 48, 
fol. 88): 

like a fyngir has a name, als men thatre fyngers 

The lest fyngir hat 1 i t y 1 - m a n , for hit is lest 

of alle ; 
The next fynger hat lee he-man, for quen a

With that fynger he tastes all thyng how that 

hit is wrogt ; 
Long-man hat the mydilmast , for longest

similar to these are still used, namely, 
thumbkin, foreman, longman, ringman, 
and Littleman. In Norfolk the lingers are 
called popularly, Tom - thumbkin, Will- 
wilkin, Long-gracious, Betty bodkin, Little-
