"cleared land," 1620s, from Old Norse or Old Danish þveit "a clearing, meadow, paddock," literally "cutting, cut-piece" (related to Old English þwitan "to cut, cut off"). Always a rare word and now obsolete, but frequently encountered in place names, but "It is unclear whether the base meaning was 'something cut off, detached piece of land,' or 'something cut down, felled tree' ..." [Cambridge Dictionary of English Place-Names].
