My master is of churlish disposition,
And little recks to find the way to heaven
By doing deeds of hospitality.
Shakespeare.—As You Like It, Act II. Scene 4. (Corin to Rosalind.)

I tell thee, churlish priest,
A minist’ring angel shall my sister be,
When thou liest howling.
Shakespeare.—Hamlet, Act V. Scene 1. (Laertes to the Priest who refused Ophelia Christian burial.)
