C[edit]

  1. cardon (cardoon)

  3. cauteriser (cauterize) - Google Books has for some reason started to let me down. I cited it as Old French, albeit late Old French. Renard Migrant (talk) 00:52, 24 December 2014 (UTC)

  2. esquiver (esquiver) - this meets CFI as http://www.cnrtl.fr/etymologie/esquiver lists it as 1600, just I'd like to see the citation with my own eyes first, and I can't find it. Renard Migrant (talk) 16:57, 14 December 2014 (UTC)
