ICKLE, ICKLE-BIRD, the Green Woodpecker (Gecinus viridis). The note of this bird is supposed to be a sign of continued rain. See French Magpie, Yaffel, Whet-ile, Wet-dial, and Wet-weather bird. infra.A Wiltshire name for this bird is Yuckle.
IDLE-FRIG, IDLE-FREG, IDLE-FRECK, IDLE-FEG; a hang-nail or sore place where the skin of the quick of the fingernails is stretched and broken.
ILL-CONVENIENT, inconvenient.

IN, for of; e.g., "What do you think in it?." Also "think on it." "In coorse", for, of course.
INGLE-MILK, milk cooked in a peculiar way over the fire. Ingle, of course, is an old word for fire, connected with Latin ignis. Cf. ingle-nook, ingle-corner. Perhaps the name of this country is derived from ingle. In the early part of the Anglo-Saxon Chronicle the Welsh, after their defeat by Hengest and Aesc, are said to have fled the "Engle swa swa fyr," that is, as they would flee from fire. This is at least an early English pun. Similarly, Seaxe, Saxon etc., may be derived from seax, a long knife: Frank from franca, a spear, etc. On the 15th century brass of Robert Ingilton, in Thornton Church, Bucks (illustrates, RECORDS VII., 56), the arms are canting arms, or armes parlantes, a fact apparently not hitherto noticed. They are blazoned Argent, a chevron between three tuns sable, with fire issuing from the bunghole of each. The fire or ingle, and the tuns make a rebus on the name Ingleton.
INJON, INON, for onion.
IRON-WEED, hawk-weed (Hieracium).
ISAACS, see Suety Isaacs.
