Root (v.)

Pericles, [5.1.89-97]. Mariana. “She speaks,/ My lord, that, may be, hath endured a grief/ Might equal yours, if both were justly weigh’d./ Though wayward fortune did malign my state,/ My derivation was from ancestors/ Who stood equivalent with mighty kings;/ But time hath rooted out my parentage,/ And to the world and awkward casualties/ Bound me in servitude.”
