English Genealogy & History

English as a surname comes from the Old English word "Englisc" and was used to denote Angles, distinguishing them from Saxons. It was also used as a nickname for Englishmen in non-English communities, such as Wales, Scotland, or Norman-settled regions, but subsequently spread throughout the country. English family history begins with the recording of Gillebertus Anglicus in the pipe rolls of Herefordshire in 1171. Well-known members of English genealogy include World War II Admiral Robert English and New Zealand Deputy Prime Minister Bill English. It is also sometimes spelled Inglis, as with former South Carolina Representative Bob English.
