TRE’NCHERMATE. n.s.

TRE’NCHERMATE. n.s. [trencher and mate.] A table compa-
nion; a parasite.

in this case serve the turn, these trenchermates frames to them-
selves a way more pleasant; a new method they have of
turning things that are serious into mockery, an art of con-
tradiction by way of scorn. Hooker, b. v.
