It seems the Old English was brought to England by Anglo-saxon settlers from the West Germanic region in Europe.  

The Germanic languages are part of Indo-European set of languages. They were spoken by the people who settled around the Elbe river nearly 1000 BC. They got split during 2nd Century B.C. That part of English language had gone to England through the Anglo-saxon inhabitants. They invaded the islands of great Britain during 5th and 6th centuries. They spoke the Old English.

Many of the words in English (more than 50%) had come from foreign languages. Only the remaining words have roots in the Old English language from Great Britain.
