You mean 'Anglican'.

The Church of England is the original Anglican church, but many other denominations in other countries were originally planted by English Anglicans, and today are provinces of the worldwide 'Anglican Communion'.

The Anglican churches are Protestant in beliefs (or should be, according to their doctrinal basis, the 39 Articles), but retain the Episcopal form of church government (i.e. bishops).
