Is your name Dean?

The following appeared in Cheshire Life Magazine - January 1964

Azure on a chevron between three eagles heads erased or six estoiles gules. The shield is painted blue and bears a chevron between three eagles heads pulled off at the neck, all in gold. On the chevron there are six red stars. It is interesting to note that the arms of HYDE are blue on the field and also contain a gold chevron.

If so, you maybe related to a family living in Norbury in the thirteenth century. Hugh de HYDE had lands in DENE in NORBURY from his father Robert De HYDE who was living in 1220. Hugh adopted the name of DENE and was progenitor of a family which spread through out the country.

He was witness to a deed relating to a water mill at STOCKPORT and it is recorded that in 1275 he served as a juror following the death of Robert De DOWNES. In 1290, Robert De DENE, probably son of Hugh, was mentioned in a charter of Richard de STOKEPORT.

In 1437, another Hugh del DENE was a juror and in 1510, John DEANE, chaplain, is mentioned in an inquiry following the death of Edward FITTON.

At the dissolution of the monasteries, a branch of the family acquired Park House Estate in NETHER ALDERLEY. This had been a part of the Dieulacres Abbey possessions.

In 1549 John and James DEANE were signatories to an inventory of the vestments and plate used at ALTERLEY Church. In 1565, Robert ROGERS, Archdeacon of Chester and Rector of GAWSWORTH, married Elizabeth DEAN, a daughter of John DEAN of WALLINGFORD, BERKSHIRE, probably a descendant of the DEANS from CHESHIRE.

Thomas DEANE was buried in ALDERLEY church in 1629 and Thomas probably his grandson, in 1695. The latter had given one hundred pounds as an endowment to the school in ALDERLEY church yard. In 1645, Thomas DEANE of DEANE GREEN was fined one thousand pounds as a delinquent and in 1664 was disclaimed at the market cross at CHESTER for refusing to register his pedigree.

The family served MACCLESFIELD well in filling the office of Mayor on no less than ten occasions between 1632 and 1810, and a number of members of the family had offices in various churches in the country.
