Tarry - An Old English word!
The word 'tarry' means to delay or be late in going. It has now been dropped from the English language. Its origins date back to Old English and use of the word was made by the English writer Geoffrey Chaucer (1343-1400) from The Franklinís Tale in his famous work 'Canterbury Tales'. Chaucer worked in the court of King Edward III and was often sent on Diplomatic missions. He married Philippa Roet, who was the sister of John of Gaunt's third wife Katherine Swynford.
