Suggestions as to how medieval village of Ancroft got its name include an abridged version of "Aidan's-croft" - the croft of St Aidan who was the first Bishop of Lindisfarne (Holy Island). As the church is dedicated to Saint Anne, it is possible that the village took its name from the church - "St Anne's croft" and a third suggestion is simply that it means one croft or solitary croft - "ane croft".
