[ gdw]

[ FEW: ; Gdf: ; GdfC: ; TL: ; DEAF:  oulden; DMF: ; TLF: ; OED:  weld n.1; MED:  weld(e n.; DMLBS: ]
M.E. (?)

The two citations are from different manuscripts of the same text, Secreta medicine, by Sampson (Dean §412). The interpretation as weld, a plant used for making dye, does not account for the second half of the word (which might also be read as deu/dieu).
