Agnes Grey, chapter XI:

  "But next day, afore I'd gotten fettled up--for indeed, Miss, I'd no
  heart to sweeping an' fettling, an' washing pots; so I sat me down i'
  th' muck--who should come in but Maister Weston!"

The Tenant of Wildfell Hall, chapter LII:

  "And I suppose the old missis is agoing to leave after this stir's
  gotten overed, and take herself off, somewhere, to live on her bit of
  a jointure;"
