How do you spell 'knowledge'?

Today I learned:

That knowledge is spelled KNOWLEDGE.

While I was helping out in Mrs Lou’s class, she wrote the word knowlege up on the board and I put up my hand (I was in class after all) and asked her to check it.  She said that she’d been picked up on spelling knowledge before and was informed that knowledge had been spelled KNOWLEGE since about the 1600’s (and she and I are soooo not that old!)

So I told her I’d make it my homework to check it out.

Mrs Lou, you are right and the others are not.  Knowledge is spelled with the D and I can’t find any evidence to the contrary.

If you’ve ever come across the spelling of knowlege <-this way, can you let me know the where’s and why’s please?
