Deans Family History
So, the DEANS family came from Cardiff! That is what I always thought until I started to research the family after my father died.
Research soon showed that my great-grandfather DEANS had been born in India and that his father was from Dalkeith in Scotland where we meet the ANDERSON, AMBROSE and NISBET branches. Robert Deans had served in the British Army and married Elizabeth PRICE from Devonport. James DEANS married Maria BRABYN and we get the BRABYN, HORNABROOK, BROWN, MERRIFIELD and other families from Cornwall. Alice DEANS family, the O'DONOHUEs and MURPHYs came from Cork in Ireland
