Gambadoes (Grose 1811 Dictionary)

Gambadoes

Leathern cases of stiff leather, used in Devonshire instead of boots; they are fastened to the saddle, and admit the leg, shoe and all: the name was at first jocularly given.

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