Just what constitutes a dewpond ? 
Like so many areas of study there are probably as at least as many definitions as there are people expressing an opinion - past and present.

This one would cover most ponds that are generally accepted as Dew Ponds:
Royal Commission on Historic Monuments Dewpond:- A shallow pond, often artificial, fed by the condensation of water from the air, occurring on high land which has no other adequate water supply.

Some thoughts from a selection of dictionaries:-
Longman - a shallow pond, natural or artificial, fed by condensation, not by a spring.
Chambers - a hollow supplied with water by mist

: mist pond, sheep pond.
