Meaning & History

The name of a village in Cambridgeshire, ultimately derived from a contraction of Old English Hengestestun which possibly meant "town of Hengest", itself from the genitive of the Old English byname HENGEST (or from Old English hengest "stallion") and Old English tun "enclosure, yard, town".
