Help with basic question please!

Hola y buenos tardes

So i was thinking at work today about asking and saying where people are from ie ¿De dónde es él? o ¿De dónde es mark? But i can't remember how you ask and tell in purral!

My guess is ¿De dónde son dean y gary?
Dean y gary son inglés, portanto son de inglaterra.

Is that right? and could i also say if(if you knew who i was talking about)
¿De dónde son ellos?

Dean y gary son ingleses, por tanto son de inglaterra.

You correctly used the verb. I corrected the Spanish that wasn't quite right.
