"maund" Definition

  1. to beg; “MAUNDERING on the fly,” begging of people in the streets.—_Old Cant._ MAUNG, to beg, is a term in use amongst the gipsies, and may also be found in the Hindoo vocabulary. MAUND, however, is pure Anglo-Saxon, from MAND, a basket. Compare BEG, which is derived from BAG—a curious parallel.
