I've been discussing this topic with someone via PM and I thought maybe others could add some names to the list.

Here's what I know of so far:

Melanie Jeschke's Oxford Chronicles

Lori Wick's English Garden series

Lawana Blackwell's Gresham series

Penny Culliford's Theodora series and other books

anything by CS Lewis obviously

Elizabeth Goudge's books certainly have Christian themes although not as obvious in her fiction as in her non-fiction

Jan Karon's new Father Tim book is supposed to be set in Ireland, the new Sisterchicks book is set in England

Melody Carlson has a book set in Ireland

Liz Curtis Higgs Scottish series

Kathleen Morgan has a historical series

Sandy Dengler's ancient history series

some of Gilbert Morris although not all

Catherine Palmer's English Ivy series

The Heathersleigh Hall series by Michael Philips

the Eden Hall series by Veronica Heley

Theodora's Diary
Penny Culliford

There is a trilogy continuing with Theodora's Wedding and Theodora's baby (I think that is right for the 3rd book)

Off hand I thought of the Wakefield Dynasty by Gilbert Morris.

Also one of my favorite authors from the UK is Stephen Lawhead. I believe he is a Christian and writes with a Christian bent, but not sure if he is considered primarily a Christian author. Several of his novels are historical taking place in Ireland, England, Wales, etc.
