Etymology

One of the several places named from R. Piddle, cf. Affpuddle 1288, Piddlehinton 1309, Puddletown 1314, Tolpuddle 1331, Turners Puddle 1294, and for the river name v. RNs.infra . It is 'estate on the Piddle assessed at thirty hides' (the assessment of Pidrie in DB) from OFr  trente 'thirty' (alternating in the 14th and 15th centuries with ME  thritty (OE  þrittig) 'thirty') and ME  hide (OE  hīd). For the DB spelling with -r -, cf. Zachrisson ANInfl 142. The OE  forms (at ) Vppidelen , (at ) uppidele ('estate on the Piddle higher upstream', from OE  upp 'upper, higher up') are cited under Puddletown par. by Ekwall DEPN following Fägersten 175, and are identified with Piddlehinton by VCHDo 3 43, but they belong here: more particularly, the bounds of the land unit of ten hides confirmed in this charter apparently describe the northernmost of the three 'tithings' of Piddletrenthide, v. Grundy 5107–12. The 'tithings' are named as Higher , Lower and Middle in 1795 Boswell, 1838TA , and are earlier Decen (n )' Superior , Decen (n )' Inferior , Decen (n )' Media in 1506, 1509–47, 1537Winch , cf. Hutch3 4485: 'The parish is divided into three divisions, improperly called tithings.'

According to Hutch3 4 485, Piddletrendhide was also 'styled Collier 's Piddle from a family that flourished here many generations, as lessees to the abbey of Hide and Winchester College', also Colliers -Piddle 1774 Hutch1 2480: for further references to this family in Piddletrenthide v. Hutch3 4486–9 and cf. John Coliar , John Colyar (had a cottage) 1506Winch , Henry Colliar , John Coliar (had messuages) 1509–47Winch , Robert Colleir , ye house of Mr Rich ' Colleir , Julian Colyer (widow) 1664 HTax, and the TA f.n. Colliers Plot infra .
