Doubt 'bout English Words

Hello ever'ydboy I'm new here on Duo and I do need your help...I just started learning English 3 days ago on my own, however I know a bit about the English language grammar and sentences.. ok some hours ago while reading I found some ''odd words'' and I'd like to know what such words mean...I'm not that sure but they probably belong to a certain kind of English grammar, an old one, spoken in 19 century or something..I know it is not a good idea to cling ourselves in isoleted words when learning a new language, but these words really made me curious. Below I did attach the words. If any of you could help me I'd be very pleased.

  • O'er
  • E'er
  • Thru
  • Thruout
  • bro't
  • Weigh down
  • Thee
  • Thou art
  • Nought
