Boney Hay

Boney Hay is of Saxon origin (Bondi’s ‘island’ enclosure) ‘island’ – more of an isolated area. [Staffordshire Place-Names Including the Black Country]

Boney Hay west of Ogley Hay Road became a populous area in the later 19th century. It evidently derives its name from waste called 'le Burnehew' in 1361. The area was known as Burnehey and Bornehay by the 16th century and in 1571 there was a house there.
