beast hide

1) The hide of an ox or cow.

In 1676 Robert Stead of Tong, a tanner, allowed his apprentice to Tann & dress one beasts hide of his own in every of the fower first yeares of his term. In the memorandum book of Miss Mary Worsley of Hovingham are receipts in 1712 for a beast skin 0 15 6 and a beast hide 0 19 6: these just about balanced what she gave to the maids and lost at cards at Thirkleby on July 1st.
