Scots living in England circa 1500-to present?

Hi everyone,
Do any Scottish people here know if Scots moved from Scotland and settled in parts of England, particularly around the time of James IV, or I?
I have an ancestor who shares the same surname as a Scottish clan (Gunn) but he is supposed to be English. However, The y-dna tests I have seen indicate otherwise. He appears to have Celtic haplogroup ancestors, in spite of what even the clann genealogists keep asserting. They say my ancestor had Danish Vikings for ancestors, but the tests indicate otherwise.
Thoughts on this,anyone? Did some Scots settle in England for a time?
I would greatly appreciate it if someone can help clear up this mystery!

Many Scots travelled to other parts of the British Isles. It's less than 600 miles from top to bottom!

There's always been movement between the two countries but there was probably a little more when James VI (not IV) took the throne of England.

Thank you both for replying.
Sorry about the typo! King James VI, of course!LOL
These Gunns were living in Essex, England.
The ydna tests seem to indicate a common ancestor from the Celtic Haplogroup, but then almost everybody in the British Isles is Celtic if you go back far enough.
It's anyone's guess at this point.

Polwarth,
What do you mean? I know that Essex is in the Danelaw area, but the ydna tests are indicating the R1b1a2 haplogroup.
Or are you refering to a football team? LOL
