    Absolutely. What is not often discussed is the shared ancestry across the North Sea and the English Channel between groups, groups that any Germanic settlers would have also been mixing with before arriving in Britain. Commoners in northern France, for example, probably wouldn't have been all that different to commoners in Kent following the withdrawal of Rome.
