JimB - You have almost got me convinced about your macintosh! Particularly as Chambers shows one of the definitions of "tosh" as "friend". So if you say "main" and "best" are synonymous, that only leaves the "C" in Close. Normally Close is shown as "Clo." in street maps, etc., but one abbreviations website I looked at gives just "C." for Close, so I really think you are on to something!

MD JimB etc. what do you think of Muckender for no 19.

Mucker = friend

Muckender = napkin

Lizzyminto

The only thing missing is a reference to "best" unless, of course, mucker is, in itself a best friend rather than just friend??
