T’ORY. n.s.

T’ORY. n.s. [A cant term, derived, I suppose, from an Irish
word signifying a savage.] One who adheres to the antient
constitution of the state, and the apostolical hierarchy of the
church of England, opposed to a whig.
The knight is more a tory in the country than the town,
because it more advances his interest. Addison.
To confound his hated coin, all parties and religions join
whigs, tories. Swift.
