Anglo-Saxons is the term usually used to describe the invading Germanic tribes in the south and east of Great Britain from the early 5th century AD, and their creation of the English nation, to the Norman conquest of 1066.[1] The Benedictine monk, Bede, writing three centuries later, identified them as the descendants of three Germanic tribes:[2]
The Angles, who may have come from Angeln (in modern Germany), and Bede wrote that their whole nation came to Britain,[3] leaving their former land empty. The name England (Old English: Engla land or Ængla land) originates from this tribe).[4]
The Saxons, from Lower Saxony (in modern Germany; German: Niedersachsen) and the Low Countries
The Jutes, possibly from the Jutland peninsula (in modern Denmark; Danish: Jylland)
Their language, Old English, derives from "Ingvaeonic" West Germanic dialects and transformed into Middle English from the 11th century. Old English was divided into four main dialects: West Saxon, Mercian, Northumbrian and Kentish.

Before 1860, Dakshina Kannada was part of a district called Kanara, which was under a single administration in the Madras Presidency. In 1860, the British split the area into South Kanara and North Kanara, the former being retained in the Madras Presidency, while the later was made a part of Bombay Province in 1862.[1] Kundapura taluk was earlier included in North Kanara, but was re-included in South Kanara later.
During the Reorganisation of States in 1956, Kasaragod was split and transferred to the newly created Kerala state and Dakshina Kannada was transferred to Mysore state (present day Karnataka).
