  • Found with monotonous regularity in Spenser's "Faerie Queene" where it seems to just mean "person" - whether human or faerie.

  • "Began some smacke of comfort new to tast,
    Like lyfull heat to nummed senses brought,"

    Could this mean "lively"?

  • "And fiercely drawing forth his blade, doth sweare,
    That who so hardie hand on her doth lay,
    It dearely shall aby, and death for handsell pay."

    Spenser's Faerie Queene, Book 6 Canto XI

    Relevant? I don't know, but the meaning given above does seem to fit the context, the "her" in this verse referring to a woman who is in danger of being sold as a slave. The "his" is her captor who doesn't want to sell her.
