O

Dean Family

Contributed by Margaret Nolen Nichol

The Dean name in England dates back to the Anglo-Saxon tribes of that country. The name is derived from the old English name "denu" meaning a valley. West Dean in Sussex, England; Deane in Hampshire, England; and Dean in Essex, England derive their names from this surname. Earliest record of Deans can be found in Sussex where a Ralph Dene had a manor and estates in that shire. Coat of Arms were granted to Sir William Deane of Essex (Parliamentary Roll); Sir Henry Deane, Northants, at the first Dunstable tournamen, in 1308; Sir Johan de Deen, at the battle of Boroughbridge, in 1322; and Robert Deane of Sussex.

Earliest record of a Deane in Delaware is of a Peter Dean who is listed in the New Castle County, Delaware Tax Assessment of the inhabitants, in 1693.

The progenitor of the Dean family of Haywood, Gibson, and Crockett County was John Dean who settled in Broadkiln Hundred, Sussex County, Delaware and is recorded in a listing of the inhabitants of the hundred, in 1785. The administrator of John Dean's Will was Jesse Dean, no doubt a son, and an uncle of the Jesse Dean who migrated to Haywood County, Tennessee between 1830 and 1840.

No marriage record has been found for John Dean but there is a strong indication that his wife's surname was Wilson. Wilson is used as a given name in many of the descendants and there were Wilson families found in Sussex County, Delaware, Monongalia County, West Virginia and Haywood County, Tennessee in areas where the Deans settled.

Broadkiln Hundred, in Sussex County, is located on Delaware Bay. Broadkiln creek flowes through the central part of the hundred and is navigable as far as Milton. Shipbuilding has been one of the industries in Sussex County, and some of the census reports indicate that some of the children of John Dean were engaged in commerce and manufacturing before becoming landowners.

The family of John Wilson Dean seemed to have migrated to Monongalia County, Virginia around 1800. West Virginia had not been formed at that time.

Notes for Jesse Dean

1820 census, Monongalia, West Virginia, Western Division: Jesse Dean with 1 male under 10; 1 male 26-45; 2 females under 10; 1 female, 26-45, 1 person engaged in agriculture; one person engaged in manufacturing.

1830 Census, Monongalia, West Virginia, Western Division: 1 male under 5; 1 male 5-10; 1 male 10-16; 1 male 40-50; 1 female 10-15; 1 female 15-20; 1 female 30-40; 1 female 50-60

Sometime between 1830 and 1840 Jesse Dean moved his family to Tennessee. All of the Tennessee censuses list the children of Jesse Dean and his oldest son, Asa's birthplaces as North Carolina. A search has been made of the available North Carolina records and the location of where they might have settled was not located. However, the available census records confirm that many of them were born in Monongalia, West Virginia that this was their birth place. By 1820, Asa had been born and by 1830, Asa, Samuel and James were born. Asa Dean consistently list his birthplace as North Carolina so it is a puzzle as to why.
