      What is your known ancestry? How far back have you researched your tree on all branches? Is it possible you have more British Isles ancestors from further back that you don't know about? I have a lot of colonial ancestors I don't know for certain their origins, for example and they could very easily be British. That aside, it's normal to get results in neighboring regions of your known ancestry. Particularly if you have Scandinavian or Germanic ancestry, it's not surprising for some of it to show up under British Isles (or vice versa). Those regions share a lot of DNA.
