The Anchose (Anchosa) Indians are known from a Spanish document of 1748 that lists the names of twenty-five Indian groups of east central and southeastern Texas who had asked for missions in that general area. About half the names on this list, including Anchose, cannot be identified. The identifiable groups include Caddoans, Tonkawans, Atakapans, and Karankawans.
