English, British, and United Kingdom writers categoriesEdit

I was looking through the author pages in these categories. The English category was supposed to be for those who "lived when England was a nation for itself." However, several authors in this category lived after the 1707 Acts of Union which created the Kingdom of Great Britain, placing them in the British category. Some even lived after the 1800 Acts of Union which created the UK, which should place them in the UK category. Unless there is some reason to do otherwise, I'll move the authors into the category which they should belong chronologically (those who lived between the two Acts of Union in the British category, those before 1707 in the English category, and those after 1800 in the UK category).
