yede

Yede

Yede\, obs. imp. Went. See Yode.

All as he bade fulfilled was indeed This ilke servant anon right out yede. --Chaucer.

Note: Spenser and some later writers mistook this for a present of the defective imperfect yode. It is, however, only a variant of yode. See Yode, and cf. Yead.

[He] on foot was forced for to yeed. --Spenser
