Dymond-Dyment-Dinant family connection

My gggrandfather, William Havelock Dymond, was born William Havelock Dyment in Prince Edward Island, Canada. He changed the spelling of Dyment to Dymond. I have read in Elmer N. Dyments book ("The Dyments") that Dyment was a corruption of Dinan, Dinant, Dynan, Dynant, Dinham, and Dynham. Those are different ways to spell the name. The name Dinant originated in a Dinan, Brittiny, France. We have traced the Dymonds and Dyments to John Deiman who was born in 1540 in England, does any body know who his father was and if there is a connection between the Dyments and Dymonds with the Dinant family?
