Practically the whole Southeast was a strongly British settled area. Georgia was strongly British. In fact, it started out as a prison colony. The Carolinas, along with Virginia, have large British population lineages.

The South has an overrepresentation of settlers from the British border regions. Northern England, Northern Ireland, and Southern Scotland are ancestral homes to many Southerners. The historian David Hackett Fischer theorizes that it was the religious and tribal violence of these British regions that has given rise to the greater incidence today of violence in the South than in the North.

The British settlement of the South from 1607 – 1700 was overwhelmingly English, particularly from the southeast and north of England to Virginia and the Carolinas. After 1700 huge numbers of Scotch-Irish, Scottish, and Irish Protestants arrived in Piedmont Virginia and North Carolina (and later Tennessee) and their descendants are found throughout the South. Many Welsh settled in South Carolina as well during the 1700s. Other major European sources of white Southern ancestry were Germany, France, Spain, Ireland, Holland, and others.
