Q: "Lieutenant Hutchinson," Doyle began, using the American pronunciation out of deference, Bodie assumed, to their host, "we've been trying to bag Evans for a long time."
"Pity you didn't." Hutchinson pulled a thick file folder from his desk drawer, opened it and scanned the papers within. "We've lost four working girls to this guy. They, may not seem important to you, gentlemen, but let me assure you that this department takes their deaths very seriously."
A little taken aback, Bodie was about to protest that he did not mean to dismiss the death of a prostitute so casually, but he caught Doyle scowling at him and his perverse streak acted up. "It's not our problem, lieutenant," he said, using the more Anglican pronunciation. "Our problem is to take him back to U.K. when your lot bags him, which they haven't been able to do either, have they? So I guess we're in the same boat."

Is there possibly some corner of the US where Anglican is still used to mean English, as supported by Collins AE Dictionary online? does this sound natural?
A: I understood it, but I don't think I've ever heard Anglican refer to anything except the Anglican Church.

Merriam-Webster also lists "of or or relating to England or the English nation", so it's possible.
