I'm looking for an archaic replacement for the word girl ?

I would go with damsel, or maybe a wench (but it can also be associated with “prostitute”, so…).
Don't replace “girl”, just because it doesn't sound like you'd expect early ME to sound. In fact, “girl” has been in use since the Middle English period, which is much earlier than what you're going for.
