Trove Tuesday - Maided

It's not too often that I find a term for The Geneadictionary in Trove. This morning  when I was looking for something else I came across the past tense of a verb "Maided" so off I went on a tangent to see if I could find other instances of the word being used in a similar context....and I did.

The clippings that follow illustrate the meaning of Maided.

That's interesting I hadn't come across that one before.

I was sure I had been taught making a noun into a verb wasn’t a good thing. Grammarly agrees https://www.grammarly.com/blog/the-basics-of-verbing-nouns/ . Done judiciously though it gets your attention.
