I am a direct desccendant of John Dean who married Sarah Edson on November 7,1663,  Ourrecords indicate that he was born about 1639 not in 1650.  He would have been 13 according to your records when he got married to Sarah Edson.

I am also looking for the father, who I believe is John Dean and his brother Walter Dean who lived in Taunton, Massachisetts where John Deane (above was born).  I am also trying to find out what ship they came over on, which I expect was in the early 1620s or 1620.  There are several records of both Walter and John settling in Cohannet and then along with other founding fathers changing the town name to Taunton.  In 1641 the street they lived on in Taunton was renamed Dean Street.
