I don't know about the lost tribes of Israel. The Brits - and to an even greater extent - the Americans, are a mish mash of differing races cultures
and creeds. Even if you chose to ignore the more recent migrations into the British Isles, and went back - say - to medieval times, there were half a
dozen genetic strands operating under the umbrella term English, Scottish, Welsh. How they can all be descended from some lost tribe is beyond me.
You're Anglo-saxons and Celts though, were inordanately fond of their creation myths, whereby they exalted some semi-divine ancestor as the founder
of their particular tribe, and when Chritianity came along it was only natural they would start tinkering with it to suit the new belief system.
