Tithes.

“Taking down from the window-seat that amusing folio (The Scottish Coke upon Littleton), he opened it, as if instinctively, at the tenth title of Book Second, ‘of Teinds or Tythes.ʹ”—Sir W. Scott: The Antiquary, chap. xxxv.

N.B. Those entitled to tithes were called in Scotland “teind-masters.”
