wench: a young woman

whence: means from where so strictly speaking from whence would be incorrect because it would mean from from where. But that construction is very common and has been for a long time (a few hundred years).

But I don't think you meant from a young woman
Or maybe you did...

Lol most definately whence. I knew it didn't look right but it spell checked and I accepted it as accurate.

Humility is a good trait I must have needed the reminder, ty.

In one sense all human minds arise at least in part from wenches... :smile:

It’s a word that always reminds me of my grandmother. Originally as you say it was simply simply the Saxon word for a young unmarried woman, but it took on more negative associations over the centuries, so if my gran disapproved of one of the young women in the neighbourhood she would refer darkly to “ that wench”...

Yes, my mother always used it in the sense of the type of young woman who would come to the pub on her own, or with one beau but leave with a different one after last orders, at least slightly the worse for wear (i.e. drunk). She used to chide my sister that she’d get the reputation for being a wench if she even arranged to meet her boyfriend at the pub, rather than him coming to the house to meet her, and then going to the pub together.

Yup.....my was from an enormous family, she was born in Trowbridge, her youngest sisters were not much older than me, Nan would say to my aunts “ are you going to the pictures with that wench? with narrowed eyes and a suspicious air...

Seems to me that this one has run it's course.
