Wesche here fete in[a]n[d] wiped hesR.16.239: R's hes is unique but is not a careless error. According
to OED2, s. v.
his, hise (pers. pron., 3rd sing. fem. acc.), this form is a
twelfth-fourteenth century variant of the 3rd person sing. accus., his(e),
which is equivalent to standard ME hem. MED, s. v.
netheren (v.) and God, cites an example from the
thirteenth-century Vices and Virtues (Bute hie hem seluen
neðerien..scal goddalmihtin hes forliesen — BL Stowe 34). and
afterwarde þei eten .
