Hi, i am a decendant of the Deed family that lived (at least for a time) in Essex.
I have hit a bit of a wall, i know there are quite a few Deed's in Essex, and i know others have traced the family as moving from Norfolk/Suffolk to Essex and that a name change occured around this point from Dade to Deed,
What i dont know is if and how my line ties in with this, i have gone as far back as John Deed who was born abt 1792 (abt1800 in some cen) Wallasea (also spelt Wallis Isl) Island, and married Mary Ann (Turner?) and then lived in Steeple and raised a family.
Now i can't seem to go back any further..
Does anyone know of any other Deed ties to east and south essex? or perhapse know some more details about the history and movement of the Deed family from Suffolk to Essex?
