The English came to England as raiders in around 449 AD known by the Catholic Church as Adventus Saxonem or the Coming of the English.

It was Alfreds Grandson - KIng Aethelstan who finally deafeated a combined army of Irish, Norse, Scots and Welsh at The battle of Brunanburgh in 937 AD.. These initial English were a confederation of 3 Germainc Saxons Angles and Jutes.

Englisc was used from the time of Alfred the Great onwards to describe both in the sense of 'Englishman' and as meaning the 'English' language. (MORE)

Because among the tribes from Northern Europe to settle in most of Britain, the biggest group was the Angles, so they called their new home Angle-land. The country of England got its name from a Germanic tribe that migrated there in the fifth century AD. These Germans called themselves Anguls or Ang…las, which became Angles around the fourteenth century. The Angle invaders called their new home Land of the Angles or Engla Land, which through time became England. The German invaders called themselves Anguls because they were from a district in Schleswig that was shaped like a fishing hook. Angul was derived from the Latin angulus, meaning "corner," which originated in an earlier Indo-European word ank, or "to bend," which had given the district and the people that name. The word angling, as in "fishing," also comes from the Latin angulus and was a reference to a "bent" fish hook. (MORE)
