Hi:
I would like to make a point. The name Deane did not derive from the fact that the brothers were deacons. The name Deane was first found in about 1520 in Chard, Somerset, Eng. Prior to that it was Dene, Denne, De Denne, Den and Dena. The first to use the name Deane was John Deane and his wife Joan Selwoode, anscestors of Walter and John Deane.
The name can be traced back to Robertus Dena, who lived about 1000 om England.
The "De" used in De Dene was dropped about the time of Queen Elizebeth II.
The "e" was dropped from Deane about1720.

More mud for the morter.
Clifford Dean
