Sorry, no etymologies found.
_  'If then anyone be found that shall henceforth practise any heathenship, either by sacrifice or by "fyrt", or in any way love witchcraft, or worship idols, if he be a king's thane, let him pay X half-marks; half to Christ, half to the king.
We are all to love and worship one God, and strictly hold one Christianity, and totally renounce all heathenship. '
