Names, Geographical

  • "A Dictionary of English Place Names" by A.D. Mills (Oxford) gives:-

    "Pyon, Canon & Kings, Heref. & Worcs.
    Pionie 1086 DB (=Domesday Book)   Pyone canonicorum 1221.  King's Pyon 1285.
    'Island infested with gnats or other insects.'   OE (Old English) pie (genitive plural peona) + ëg"
    The Distinguishing affix 'Canon' derives from early possession by the Canons of Hereford.

    In other sources, ëg is translated as 'land between streams', rather than 'island' - c.f. "Place Names of Derbyshire" and derivation of Eyam, from the dative plural ëgum.
