Meaning of digby

digby means: Peculiar to Exeter area: used in same way as "Joey Deacon", Digby was a hospital for the mentally ill (since turned into a new housing development) on the outskirts of Exeter. When it was still a hospital (with a high rate of patients wandering off and being found confused in people's back gardens), the word "Digby" was used in a similar way to "Joey" (same era) by schoolkids in the surrounding schools. This interesting little snippet came from NSW, Australia: This term, with exactly the same me aning, was used by a small group of children from Goulburn, NSW c. 1978-1981. Seemed to have been started by one particu lar boy with a vague knowledge of a crap Australian folksinger (I think) named Digby Wolf. Anyway, digby became 'ya dig by wolf' if someone was excessively stupid.
