-------------------- Witta son of Wecta is mentioned as a Jutish chieftain in the 449 entry of the Anglo-Saxon Chronicle as the father of Wihtgils and the grandfather of Hengest and Horsa. He also appears in the same role in Henry of Huntingdon's Historia Anglorum[1]. He is most probably mythological, but as a historical person he would have been born around 400 AD.
