Dionis™ takes its name from Mrs. Dionis Coffin who emigrated from Devonshire, England to Massachusetts in 1642; she settled in Nantucket Island in 1660.
In the year 1653, Mrs. Coffin was brought into court at Newbury, MA and charged with overpricing her beer (3d. per quart). She stoutly defended herself maintaining it was a higher quality beer and was acquitted!
Dionis and her husband had 9 children and many descendants. The first steam engine in Nantucket was named Dionis and a beach called Dionis Beach on Nantucket Island, still very popular today.
