Used in Elizabeth Gaskell's, 19th century novel about life in industrial Manchester, entitled 'Mary Barton'.
She took the bread, when it was put into her hand, and broke a bit, but could not eat. She was past hunger. She fell down on the floor with a heavy unresisting bang. The men looked puzzled.
"She's wellnigh clemmed," said Barton. "Folk do say one mustn't give clemmed people much to eat; but, bless us, she'll eat nought."
