PIGWI'DGEON. n.s.

PIGWI’DGEON. n.s. This word is used by Drayton as the
name of a fairy, and is a kind of cant word for any thing
petty or small.
Where’s the Stoick can his wrath appease,
To see his country sick of Pym’s disease;
By Scotch invasion to be made a prey
To such pigwidgeon myrmidons as they?  Cleaveland.
