In the everyday speech of ordinary people, the use of half long predated the other fractions. This is the earliest entry in the Oxford English Dictionary, from the year 835:

Charter in Old Eng. Texts 447, & him man selle an half swulung an ciollan dene.

The earliest reference to third as a fraction (as opposed to an ordinal number) is from half a millennium later: 1384.
