We weren't 'English' until after the Angles 'landed'. There were Celts here
before that, and they got pushed into Wales and Ireland. Scots are a
derivation of those, and they pushed the Picts out. There were people is what
is now England before the North Sea separated us from continental Europe, I
very much doubt they spoke 'English', even though we may still have a few
words left over from then (probably rude ones).

Despite Wikipedia the English language was spoken in Britain long
before anyone landed from foreign shores.
