Genealogy… Americans With English Ancestry… It’s Not that Simple

Some people think that having English ancestry is simple. Their ancestors were English… end of subject. Not quite. England was settled by people coming from many different regions. About 5,500 years ago, the first farmers went to England by boat from the main European continent. These early European farmers brought wheat, flax, barley, and the typical farm animals you see today, goats, pigs, sheep and cattle. Evolved from hunter-gatherers, these new farmers brought pastoral living to Britain. Because they no longer wondered in search of food, they developed communities and began the evolution toward making metal tools. First of copper, later bronze and eventually iron. Today, as more people have DNA testing, they are discovering the origins of these ancient English ancestors. Suellen Ocean is the author of the historic novel The Celtic Prince Available here:
