For what it is worth the collocation <yn> is attested 1874 times.
<in> is attested 2596 times. Some of the attestations of <in>
are Latin or English. All the same, it must be admitted
that <in> is very common. Since we do have both <yn>
and <in>, it seems sensible to use them both.

The first instance of <in> is in the Charter Fragment:

in vrna yz sens ze ves meystres
hedyr vywy hag harluzes
'then he will consider thee to be mistress
as long as you live and lady' CF 35-36.

in vrna is KS i'n eur-na. Both have <i> rather than <y>.
