- Here's "tyme" in a document dated 1588 (date is given on the previous page), here's use in the Massachusetts charter of 1629 and here's a use in one of Shakespeare's legal documents, of 1602. I'll try to write these up now. Smurrayinchester (talk) 09:14, 18 May 2012 (UTC)
- As an aside, why is it defined as "sir" in Middle English? The quote is "Ser, in his tyme maister Ioon Wiclef was holden of ful many men the grettis clerk that thei knewen lyuynge vpon erthe". "Sir, in his sir Master Ioon Wiclef was thought by many men the greatest clerk that they knew living on the Earth?" That makes no sense, while time would be a perfect fit.
