A rapid, violent gallop: a devoted adherent of the court in the time of Charles II.; a royalist; "Those who took the king's side were anti-Birminghams, abhorrers, and tantivies. These appellations soon became obsolete."-Macaulay; "Collier ... was a Tory of the highest sort, such as in the court of his age was called a tantivy."-Macaulay: a mixture of haste and violence; a rush; a torrent; "Sir, I expected to hear from you in the language of the lost groat, and the prodigal son, and not in such a tantivy of language; but I perceive your communication is not always yea, yea."-Cleaveland.
