WHAT DOES GILLIFLOWER MEAN IN ENGLISH?

Gilliflower

A gilliflower or gillyflower is: ▪ The carnation or a similar plant of the genus Dianthus, especially the Clove Pink Dianthus caryophyllus. ▪ Matthiola incana, also known as stock. ▪ Several other plants, such as the wallflower, which have fragrant flowers. The name derives from the French giroflée from Greek karyophyllon = "nut-leaf" = the spice called clove. It was frequently used in medieval tenure documents as a means of payment of peppercorn rent for land. For example in 1262 in Bedfordshire an area of land called The Hyde was owned by someone "for the rent of one clove of gilliflower", and Elmore Court in Gloucester was granted to the Guise family by John De Burgh for the rent of "The clove of one Gillyflower" each year. In Kent in the 13th century Bartholomew de Badlesmere upon an exchange made between Edward I and himself, had a grant made to him in see of a manor and chapel, to hold in socage, "by the service of paying one pair of clove gilliflowers", by the hands of the sheriff.
