Cribbeys (Grose 1811 Dictionary)

Cribbeys

Cribby Islands

Blind alleys, courts, or bye-ways; perhaps from the houses built there being cribbed out of the common way or passage; and islands, from the similarity of sound to the Caribbee Islands.

Definition taken from The 1811 Dictionary of the Vulgar Tongue, originally by Francis Grose.
