After further thought, I think it's actually written ...off an (h)Edg(er)y (= hedgery), with an er abbreviation running through the descender of the letter y at the end.

Good one Bookbox. I don't think I would have figured that one out.

While I'm not fully confident about the writing of that last word, I think the sense is clear.

'Stealing wet linen off the hedges' was known as 'lully prigging' I think.
