Isle of Wight
It used to be Kent so I chose that option.
My gr gr gr gr gran was called Joanna Kench, which might JUST come from 'Kentish'. She was from Oxfordshire, though.
Before the Empire, my family was in Shropshire, Staffordshire before that, and Cheshire before that. We migrated there right after the Conquest from the lower Severn. My mother is Kentish. We're spread all over the world now - mostly in North America and Africa. Would that we hadn't.
Though - England has changed over the past few centuries. They say 'You can't go back', and certainly some un-English pits of humanity like London and Stoke have swallowed up the ancestral villages. Saruman may be dead, but he is still winning.
