    Name originates from an ancient oath 'by cock and pie' - an allusion to a gastronomical dish once created for banquets of chivalry - peacock pie included a guilded head at one end and a fanned tail at the other - and marked solemn occasion when knights-errant would pledge themselves to hazardous undertakings or enterprises.
