1) Uncertain meaning.

The only example noted is in Patrington court rolls: 1654 the wife of John Laykes, for stryking Gregorye Bilton with a doubing and mayking an assault. The meaning suggested by the editor of the document was ‘rolling-pin’ but I have been unable to confirm that. Wright lists ‘dobbin’ as a Yorkshire word meaning ‘a small glass tumbler’ and that might fit the context.
