Green’s Dictionary of Slang

Fumblers-Hall, kept and holden in Feeble-Court, at the sign of the Labour-in-vain, in Dee-little-Lane, wherein divers complaints & agrievances, out of the feminines in Cornucopia, are presented to the grave wisdoms of the masters of that company: concerning non-performance, want of due benevolence, deficiencie and corporal disabilities in man-kind, whereby poor distressed females languish under a pressing weight of misery, not only to the great decay of their trade and occupations, but to the destruction of generation it self. Whereunto is added the second part, newly discovered and set forth for information of delinquents that are to answer to these interrogations that shall be objected against them
