Curious about ethnicity

    ”Welsh” are less ethnically ”pure” as a lot of Brythonic racists like to think. Wales is about as ”multicultural” as England. And I think the percentage of people with Irish ancestry is almost the same as in England too (around 20%). Charlotte Church could, indeed, be part English far enough back and it is as likely as English people being part Welsh far enough back too (quite common…they share islands!).

    Reed is very common welsh surname too.Origin of this surname from Old English language,but it doesn’t mean that Reed’s have English ancestors.Wales is an English-speaking region for a long time
