Name Meaning

English (found mainly in Yorkshire): patronymic from one of several Middle English personal names. Reaney and Wilson have it as ‘son of Hann ’ or ‘son of Hand ’. Bardsley explains it as ‘son of Anne’, but Anne was not common as a Middle English personal name, although this is very probably the sense of the Scottish surname Anisoun. More plausible in a medieval context, perhaps, is ‘son of Agnes’ ( see Annis ), or even ‘son of Anselm ’.
