Nye: English place name, e.g., Nye in Somerset. According to Reaney it's from the Middle English, atten eye, meaning "at the piece of low lying land".
Hage: could it be Haigh or Hague? Both from a minor Yorkshire place name, or names. Cognate with the modern word hedge, though it might mean a fence.
Or could it be Haig? A Scottish surname said to be from Cap la Hague, Normandy, France. The Hague in that name means the same as the last.
Watson means son of Wat, short for Walter. A Northern English and Scottish surname.
