Is there a direct English translation for the word "trawferre"(what I am assuming is a Latin word)

from the Lord Coke quote ...alienum facere vel ex nostro dominio in alienum trawferre sive rem aliquam in dominium alterius transferre...

I understand the legal meaning of the entire phrase, but having trouble finding a translation for the single word "trawferre"

any help is appreciated, Thank you

It must be a typo. A Latin verb such as trawferre does not exist. I think trawferre must be transferre correctly.
The letter w does not yet exist in the Latin alphabet.

Thank You Roger,

I thought it was a typo, but because the typo appeared in every online legal dictionary, I figured it had to be a real written Latin verb (one that produces a noun). I can't imagine every legal reference book to include the typo, so it must be a corrupted data base effecting only e-documents

I agree with Roger.
Besides, in various books found through Google Books, you can see the correct form "transferre" in the sentence.
