The answer to why Anns Hill? possibly?

In the Gosport Museum booklet called ‘The Place Names of Gosport’ by Philip Eley, he says, 'Anns Hill. Anwell, Annswell. 15th century. Anwell probably derives from Old English enadawiell - ducks' stream - reflecting the stream that once flowed into the head of Forton millpond. Later the name transferred itself to a natural spring at the corner of Mill Road with Brockhurst Road. The tendency for a 'w' in a name to become silent (e.g. Southwick)explains the transformation from well to hill (Annswell, Annsell, Annshill) many years before the first railway bridge gave the area a real hill.'
