I don't know about lions but probably the European lion did. Certainly there were wolves and bears, as there were throughout Europe, once upon a time when England was still mostly forests. But I think they'd all been hunted to extinction by the fifteenth century.

There are certainly wildcats in Scotland to this day, but not in England. They are not very big animals though.
