To Yead, or Yede. v.n. preterite yode. [This word seems to have been corruptly formed from ᵹoꝺ, the Saxon preterite of ᵹan.] To go; to march. Obsolete.
They wander at will, and stay at pleasure,
And to their fold yeade at their own leisure. Spenser.
Then bad the knight this lady yede aloof,
And to an hill herself withdraw aside,
From whence she might behold that battle's proof,
And eke be safe from danger far descry'd. Fairy Queen.
Yet for she yode thereat half aghast,
And Kiddy the door sparred after her fast. Spenser.
That same mighty man of God,
That bloud red billows like a walled front,
On either side disparted with his rod,
'Till that his army dry-foot through them yod. Spenser.
