'Had ya whisht'?? - Meaning?


In some of the dialogue, there are a few North England/Jordie colloquialisms.

So I know about the Lampton Worm Song - 'whisht lads, had ya gobs' and what that meant, does 'had ya whisht' mean the same basic thing?

Discuss. Serious answers only please. Thanks in advance.

Yes, it means exactly that. 'Wheesht' or 'haud yer wheesht' is also used in Scotland. There are quite a few phrases which straddle the border.
