  • (noun) - The barbarous practice of throwing at cocks, formerly a custom at Shrovetide. This unmanly pastime is, I fear, not entirely abolished in some parts of England. Query--if the word sqwoilin is from cwellan, to kill? Sqwoilin is also used for throwing. --John Akerman's Glossary of Provincial Words and Phrases in Wiltshire, 1842
