English people who belong to the Anglican Communion, in almost all cases meaning specifically the oldest church in that communion, the Church of England. The Church of England is the established church in England and from the mid 1530s to the 19th century, except during the reign of Mary I (1553-58), political power in England was almost entirely in the hands of people who were at least nominally Anglican, and Anglicans had privileges in and were dominant in many other fields.
People born in a Parish in England are automatically Anglicans; therefore the inclusion of an article in this category does not necessarily indicate that the subject of the article possessed personal Christian faith, nor should it be assumed that inclusion in the list suggests that a subject considered himself an Anglican, nor that he attended an Anglican church.
