Surnames: Dean
Trying to trace the origins Charles Dean, my GGGrandfather.
I am sure he is connected to Samuel & Matilda (Chestnut) Dean of Bushmills. One of their daughters "Martha" who married into the McAllisters spoke of her sister "Annie" (Versace) Dean who emmigrated to Australia. This was in a book called "The Bushmills Heroes" when it describes how her Nephew Driver James Versace of the Australian Imperial Force visited her shortly after the Funeral of her son Isaac Bell Mcallister who died as a result of wounds received at the Somme.
Sorrry to be so long winded but the point is that Annie's birth is not recorded, could this be the Same with Charles? could he also be a brother to Martha?

Hi Tom,
I'm trying to obtain information regarding Antonio Versace who married Annie Dean in Australia. I've copied the information here that I posted on the Deans. I would be most greatful if you could supply me with any information to help my search.
Thanks, Leonie

I am trying to trace my gg grandfather Antonio Filippe. He disappeared/deserted after my gg grandmother died in Melbourne in 1883 leaving 4 children in Ballarat. I am trying to figure out one way or another if Antonio Versace (who married Annie Dean) could be my gg grandfather. The signature on the marriage certificate of Antonio Filippe matches the signature on the marriage certificate of Antonio Versace. Do you have any information on Antonio Versace? When he was born? When he came to Australia? Any family stories passed down? Did he have any history in Melbourne. My gg grandfather owned a restaurant in Melbourne, as well as a shop in Carlton. Family stories say he travelled alot and I was also told he was a sea man? I have been trying for 30 years on and off to find him. It would be interesting if any stories filtered down through your family match those of mine. Or is his past a mystery?
A professional researcher at Ballarat felt strongly that Antonio Versace could be my gg grandfather and after I looked at the signatures, had to agree.
I do hope that you may be able to help me.

Surnames: BOYD, DEAN
Hi Tom, I think we've been in contact before.
I've just posted about my ancestor Margaret DEAN c1824, of Bushmills, who I'm still trying to research.
Have you made any further progress on your family? I've always had the (unproven) hunch that Samuel DEAN was a sibling of my Margaret DEAN.

All I have for certain, is that Margaret's father was a butcher, and that she married Stephenson BOYD in Bushmills in 1842.

Would you know if there is some sort of directory or census records I could look up to find surnames and occupations in Antrim?

Best regards, Victoria Boyd

Did you manage to locate a death record for Annie in Australian BMD records? Her death record would most likely have her parents names.
