I did not suspect the first couple meanings at all, and, having read them, would not have suspected that the word was related to “cloy”.
Obs. or arch.
The development of meaning is fully seen under CLOY.
1. To drive a nail into a horse’s foot when shoeing; hence, to lame. lit. and fig.
2. To pierce, stab. rare.
4. To block, obstruct, clog, choke. lit. and fig.
6. To overburden (the stomach); to nauseate.
7. To disgust, weary, become offensive to.
