dreamed vs dreamt

This shows that dreamed has been the preferred form at least since 1800. And indeed, based on examples found in historical Google Books searches, dreamed has always been more common than dreamt, and dreamt is likely the newer form. We find an abundance of instances of dreamed in sources from the 16th and 17th centuries, while dreamt is rare until the 19th.
