The kings of East Anglia according to Bede are descended from the Angles.  Bede describes how the Angles came from a land called Angulus and how it was situated between the land of the Saxons and the Jutes.  Bede describes how the Wuffingas took their name from Wuffa, and that the kings of East Anglia were descended from him.  Wuffa is not mentioned in the Anglo Saxon Chronicle.  It could be that Wuffa and his son Tytila are semi-historical figures who were created at a later date to fill the void in linking the later kings to the Wuffingas tribe.
