Lookup English Definition:

had    : [h'æd]
Had \Had\ (h[a^]d), imp. & p. p. of {Have}. [OE. had, hafde,
hefde, AS. h[ae]fde.]
See {Have}.
[1913 Webster]

{Had as lief}, {Had rather}, {Had better}, {Had as soon},
etc., with a nominative and followed by the infinitive
without to, are well established idiomatic forms. The
original construction was that of the dative with forms of
be, followed by the infinitive. See {Had better}, under
{Better}.
[1913 Webster]

And lever me is be pore and trewe.
[And more agreeable to me it is to be poor and

--Fabian.

Twenty bookes, clad in black or red, . . .
Than robes rich, or fithel, or gay sawtrie.
--Chaucer.
[1913 Webster]

Note: Gradually the nominative was substituted for the
dative, and had for the forms of be. During the process
of transition, the nominative with was or were, and the
dative with had, are found.

--Ps. lxxxiv.
10.
[1913 Webster]

& vb. n. {Having}. Indic. present, I {have}, thou {hast}, he
{has}; we, ye, they {have}.] [OE. haven, habben, AS. habben
(imperf. h[ae]fde, p. p. geh[ae]fd); akin to OS. hebbian, D.
hebben, OFries. hebba, OHG. hab[=e]n, G. haben, Icel. hafa,
Sw. hafva, Dan. have, Goth. haban, and prob. to L. habere,
whence F. avoir. Cf. {Able}, {Avoirdupois}, {Binnacle},
{Habit}.]

4. To get possession of; to obtain; to get. --Shak.

[1913 Webster]

12. To put in an awkward position; to have the advantage of;
as, that is where he had him. [Slang]
[1913 Webster]

Note: Have, as an auxiliary verb, is used with the past
participle to form preterit tenses; as, I have loved; I
shall have eaten. Originally it was used only with the
participle of transitive verbs, and denoted the
possession of the object in the state indicated by the
participle; as, I have conquered him, I have or hold
him in a conquered state; but it has long since lost
this independent significance, and is used with the
participles both of transitive and intransitive verbs
as a device for expressing past time. Had is used,
especially in poetry, for would have or should have.
[1913 Webster]

Myself for such a face had boldly died.
--Tennyson.
[1913 Webster]

{To have a care}, to take care; to be on one's guard.
