noynesse (1312)

[ gdw]

[ FEW: *7,187b nonna; Gdf: ; GdfC: ; TL: ; DEAF: ; DMF: ; TLF: ; OED: ; MED: ; DMLBS: ]

This unique attestation provides a word(-form) not found elsewhere, which apparently consists of a somewhat deviant form of none2 (not attested on its own, but similar to a variant like noigne) with a superfluous feminine suffix attached.
