burly & I'll be bound

Quotations:

Complete Works of Virginia Woolf:

At this point, however, the door opened and a tall burly man entered the room, came forward and shook Helen's hand with an emotional kind of heartiness, Willoughby himself, Rachel's father, Helen's brother-in-law.

They've got god heads on their shoulders, I'll be bound?

Definitions:

burly:
big, strong and heavy.

I'll be bound:
used when you have said something that you are certain is true.
