Withburga, Youngest Daughter of Annas

Just something I found while exploring.....

From The European magazine, and London review, Volumes 65-66, by Philological Society (Great Britain):

This Bath
 was erected in the year
 (in part by voluntary subscription for public benefit)
 on the ruins of a Tomb which contained
 the Remains of
 youngest daughter of Annas,
 King of the East Angles,
 who died AD 654.
The Abbot and Monks of Ely stole this
 precious Relique,
 And transmitted it to Ely Cathedral,
 where it was interred near her three
Royal Sisters
