Anne appears in Withycombe under s.n. Ann, where the author states that

"It occurs first in England about the beginning of the 13th C(1218 is the earliest record), but it was rare until the beginning of the 14th C, when it began to come into more general use, perhaps partly owing to the influence of Anne of Bohemia, queen of Richard II. Its popularity grew steadily after the beginning of the 16th C, and by the beginning of the 17th C it was one of the commonest English names, a position it retained for at least two centuries."

Whateley is found as a byname in the following FamilySearch historical record:

Sound most important.

Tegan appears as a late-period English byname in FamilySearch historical records:

Anglesey is a place name. It is a small island across the Minia strait from England in the Irish Sea. It is a part of Wales and England. Ongulsey or Viking for "Hook Island" is the accepted etymology of the name. Spelling in Viking, Welsh, and pre-19th Century English is problematic, as evidenced by the changes in spelling.
