3.25. Of the drie meaſures of Englande, and their compariſon with others. Cap. 25.

Of the drie meaſures of Englande, and their compariſon with others. Cap. 25.

AS before we ſée in the moyſt, ſo doe all our drie meaſures fetch their originall from the ſponefull &c. vntill they come al the gallon: beyonde the which wée haue [...] Pecke or farthendeale of a buſhell (for that is our Engliſhe worde for a fourth part) [...] twoo gallons.

Halfe buſhell of foure gallons.

Buſhell of eyght gallons, or 64. pounde, Troye.

Strike of two Buſhelles or 128. pounded by 16. gallons.

Coome raſor or corn [...]cke of foure burſhell or 256. pounde or 32. gallons.

Quarter or ſeame of 8. Buſhelles or 512. pounde or 64. gallons.

Way, or 6. quarters of 5702. pounde or 384. gallons as by the rule of proportion is eaſie to be founde.

By theſe meaſures alſo we meaſure our Muſtard ſéede, Rape ſéede, Carot rootes, ſalt, and fruite, notwithſtanding that the filling of the Buſhell be diuers, ſith in Corne, ſalte, and ſéedes we ſtrike with a rule, but in Ap|ples & Rootes we poure them on by heape [...] This is furthermore to be conſidered, that although one wheate or barly be heauyer then an other, as the ſoyle is wette or drie, Barly cõmonly then Otes, Rye then [...]arly, wheate then Rye. &c. alſo in liquide wares, Oyle compared with wine, and both wyth hony, yet ye meaſure framed after the afore|ſayde weightes doth meate them all indiffe|rently ſo that the quantitie of the ſtandarde and not the qualitie of ware meaſured, is al|wayes to be looked on. In déede it is founde by experience that a lyke meaſure of wyne Oyle and hony being weighed togither, the Oyle ſhalbe lighter by a ninth part then the EEBO page image 123 wine, and the hony heauyer then the Wine almoſt by a thirde. Certes there is nothing that cõmeth néerer the weight of wine then the pureſt water, and yet one Wine is hea|uyer then an other as waters alſo are, of which the moſt groſſe is euer more ye weigh|tieſt. And theſe thinges haue not béene vn|knowne in tymes paſt alſo vnto the Gre|cians: for weyghing theyr Culeus of Oyle, it peyſed but 1333. pound, 4 oũces, wheras that of Wine came vnto 1481. li. fiue oun|ces ſixe Drachmes and foure Silquas. But of hony vnto 2222. pounde, twoo ounces, 9. Drachmes, one Scriptula. &c. whereof this maye ſuffice for an admonition to the rea|der. Nowe let vs ſee thoſe of the Grecians for my former purpoſe, whoſe

Cyathus hath tenne ſpoonfulles, or an ounce and one Drachme.

Oxybaphon 15. ſpoonfulles or two ounces and two Drachmes.

Cotyle foure Oxybapha or nine ounces.

Sextarius 2. Cotylas or 18. ounces.

Chenix. 3 Cotylas or 27. ounces, so called bycause that quantitie suffised to finde a man breade for an whole daye. [...]er [...]enice ne [...]eas, [...], is ſtay [...] vpon [...] dayes [...]iſion, [...]ouerbe [...]ſed by [...]hagoras

Medimnus or Metretes: 48. Chenices or 108. pounde.

¶ In lyke ſort in Rurall meaſures their Myſtrum hath 2. ſpoonfulles and an halfe.

Cyathus 4. Myſtra, or ſixe ſpoonfulles.

Oxybaphon 4. Myſtra 2. ounces 2. Drach|mes.

Cotyle foure Oxybapha, nyne ounces.

Chenicx 3. Cotylas 27. ounces.

Semiduodecima Medymni 2. Chenicas 4. pounde 6. ounces.

Semiſextarius 9. pounde.

Sextarius 18. pounde.

Tertiarius 16. Chenicas 36. pounde.

Semimedymnu(m) 24. Chenicas or 54. pound.

[...]you [...]de of a [...]dymnus [...]. Modi| [...] [...] you [...]ſt ac| [...]ept it as [...]ewe [...]cilian [...]aſure, ye [...]erwiſe Rome or [...]hens [...]teined [...]nd the [...] Sici| [...] mea| [...] 4. and [...]alfe. Medymnus 28. Chenicas or 108. pound and these of the Greekes.

Now ſhall thoſe of the Romaines followe in ſuch order as in ſueth.

Cloclearium a ſpoonefull 3. Drachmes and one Scriptula.

Cyathus 4. ſpoonefuls one ounce & an halfe, one Drachme one Scriptula.

Acetabulum a Cyathus & an halfe 2. oun|ces and foure Drachmes.

Hemina or Cotula foure Acetabula or tenne ounces.

Sextarius two Heminas or 20. ounces.

Semodius eyght Sextarios 13. pounde foure ounces.

Modius 16. Sextarios [...]6. pounde 8. ounces.

Theſe aforeſayde meaſures compared al|ſo with our Engliſh haue ſuch proportion.

Cyathus as aforeſayde, one ounce & eight graines, Engliſhe.

Cotyle, 6. ounces 48. graines Engliſh.

Chenix one pounde 6. ounces, one Drach|me 64. graines Engliſh.

Medymnus 72. pounde, 10. ounces, 32. grains Engliſh.

3.25.1. Their Rurall meaſures conferred with ours.

Their Rurall meaſures conferred with ours.

Chenix a quarte.

Semiduodecima a Pottle & 4. Drachm.

Semiſextarius, a gallon and an ounce.

Sextarius, two gallons and two ounces.

Tertiari, foure gallons & foure ounces.

Semimedimnus 6. gallons & halfe a pint.

Medymnus exactly 13. gallons.

Whereby we ſée that their lyquide mea|ſure is ſomewhat greater then the drye by two ounces and thrée Drachmes. Nowe it reſteth yt I do the like wt the weightes of the Romaine dry meaſures, after which I will gyue out the weightes of Venice as Au|guſtinus Pantheus in his de rebus Voarcha|dumicis and other doe ſet them downe.

Cyathus one ounce and an halfe.

Semodius, 12. pounde Troy, that is, a gallon and an halfe.

Modius 24. pound, that is, thrée gallons,

And more I remember not at this pre|ſent of their drye meaſure,

I might here adde other meaſures of the Hebrues alſo. But I find ſuch variety in thẽ as maketh me rather to omit then publiſhe them in this treatize. And fyrſt of all theyr Chor, which ſignifieth an heape of graine,Chor. & is not onely the iuſt loade of a Camell, but alſo containeth 30. Modios as Epiphanius doth ſet downe, notwithſtanding that Bude hath 41. Medimmos. Lethec. The Lethec alſo (wherof Oſee ſpeaketh, ſaying, Morcede conduxi mihi Lethec hordei. &c.) is al one with the Gomor or halfe Cor, and called Lethec of lifting vp,Gomor. becauſe a yong man might eaſely lift it vp to laye it vpon his aſſe. Their Batos of Oyle,Batos. with Epiphanius hath, 50. Sextarios, with Budee 27. The Modius of ye Iues, 22. Sextarios in the firſt, but in the treatize of this later, only 16. In lyke ſorte there is difference in the Cab. as fourth part of the Modius. Modius. Cab. Mnaſis. Alſo in ye Manſis, or Medimnus, which after Epipha|nis hath 10. Modios, ye Salanien or Conſtan|tinuan 5. Modios and that of Paphos and Si|cilia, onely 4¼ all which diſcordances I am not able to reconcile, eſpecially being things of ſuch antiquitie, and therfore I giue vppe to ſpeake any longer of them. Furthermore in turning ouer ſuch old bookes as came vn|to EEBO page image 133 my handes I finde alſo this note inſuyng 6. which

Charette hath 4. graines.

Peny 8 Carettes.

Euery graine of Batement a Peny in Gold, but after Fraunce, Venice, and ſome other places, they haue but ſixe Carettes in the peny, and 4. graines in the Carette, which oddes groweth by the difference of weightes, for beyonde the ſea they haue 24. pence in the ounce, which is 4. pence more in value, then the ounce Engliſh, after the olde occount of pence. By theſe Carettes pearles and ſtones are valued and ſolde, but not gold, which hath neuertheleſſe the name of Carettes in his Pois, but after an other proportion.

Of Weightes of Venice, alſo Auguſtinus Pantheus, ſaith thus.

  • Eximo is the 156. parte of a graine.
  • A graine conteineth 156. Eximos.
  • Charattus or Siliqua 4 graines.
  • Quartus 36. Carattes, or the olde guilden,
  • Ounce 4. quartes. 144. Carattes.
  • Marca or Bes 8. ounces or 1152. Carattes.
  • Marchus 16. ounces, or 2304. Carattes.
  • Rubus 20. Marcas.
  • Poſta 40. Marchas, whereof let this ſuffice, & for the ſettyng forth of the iuſt proportion of weights and meaſures, I hope that which is already ſpoken ſhall be ynough.
