They each played a part on the creation of what is Great Britain now Tony.

Saxons, along with Angles, Jutes, Frisians invaded or migrated to the island of Great Britain (Britannia) around the time of the collapse of Roman authority in the west.The names Essex, Middlesex, Sussex and Wessex come from the Saxons.

After 1066, a big year for the Normans, the Saxons lost power, but with the Normans came the addition of French speaking words and traditions, religions and art. By the time the 100 years war began the Normans of Britannia were more British than French. (sorry Tony I know I don't know as much as you do on this subject.)

Suffice it to say I think every group you mentioned left some impact on Great Britain.
