Attested: RC Coloneas
Where: Uncertain. RC lists Coloneas in a stream of names with uncertain locations, probably just north of the Somerset Levels. Conceivably near the Charterhouse lead mines.
Name origin: Most likely based on Latin colonia ‘settlement’. There is no obvious proper Roman town in the right area, so presumably this referred to a cluster of farms operated by retired Roman soldiers.
