    Many of the original colonies were founded by England, but not all of them. New York and New Jersey were were originally Dutch colonies. Delaware was founded by Swedes.

    Some surnames are anglicized, some not.

    To answer question number 2: as a Dutchman with the surname Groenendijk (very common in The Netherlands), when I visited the US, to my surprise a truck passed me by carrying the company name "Groendyke Transport". So yes, non English surnames can indeed be anglicized as I have found out first hand. But I imagine they don't always have to be.
