Looking for information regarding my 6th great grandmother.

Question by marjery55

She was Jane Fennison. She was born in Warrington, York County, Philadelphia, USA in the 1700s. She married a Mr. Smith. They went to England and lived in or around Aldgate Street, Holy Trinity Minories, East End London. The whole family were in the sewing business.
I am Australian because I am descended from Jane's great grandson, my 3rd great grandfather Charles Heath.
I am wondering if Jane Fennison's name may have been anglicesed and her husband Smith as well. I have researched the area where she was born and it appears to have Finnish, Palitinate Germans, Swedish, and perhaps they may have been French Hugenot. Is there anyway I can find out the origins of the name? My brother seems to feel it may have been Swiss/German and they came from the Rhineland Platz area escaping religious persecution. I would love to know.
