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.' ” —Sir W. Scott: The Antiquary, chap. xxxv.

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