Names, Geographical

Tycho WING was the Duke of Bedford's agent at Thorney, a surveyor and London instrument maker (Tycho Wing's Altazimuth Theodolite along with Thomas HEATH). Tycho surveyed the Nene River outfall and surrounding marshes. The Nene River mouth is called Tycho Wing's Channel, and the area on the east side of the river is Wingland, or Wingfield. Pam Downes advises that there were two Tycho Wings. One, an astologer, died in 1760, but a second was alive in the 1841 census in Thorney.
