nonerie (1331)

[ gdw]

[ FEW: 7,188b nonna; Gdf: ; GdfC: ; TL: ; DEAF: ; DMF: ; TLF: ; OED:  nunnery n.; MED:  nonneri(e n.; DMLBS: ]
nonerye,  noneyme (l. noneyrie?)  

The form noneyme remains unexplained, and the suggested legitur is debatable. The form has been placed here because the context suggests it means ‘nunnery’, but it should not be excluded that this is either a misreading or a different word altogether.
