would like to have or like. as in I'd fancy a cup of tea and some scones about now. I live in the US and have used 'fancy' in that manner for the past 35 years. My mother-in-law was English and my grand mother in law was born in Dover so I heard it a lot and picked up the term along with many others, like 'car park', motor car, carriage way, boot and bonnet for trunk and hood, 'chemist' for drug store and many others too numerous to mention.
