var. of boultel, Obs., a sieve, sieve-cloth.(Owing to a misunderstanding of the passage in Act 51 Hen. III (quoted s.v. boultel) the word bultel was explained in Blount Law Dict. 1670 as ‘the refuse of the Meal after it is dressed by the Baker’. This erroneous definition was repeated with some differences of expression by Phillips and Bailey, and appears in many recent Dicts.)
