WikiTree profile: Michael Denne
in Genealogy Help by
Why do you think he might be related? Doesn't look real likely. The profile has no sources; Michael is supposed to have lived at Denne Hill, which is  in Kent, and thus pretty far from Chard, Somerset; and Deane/Dean/Denne doesn't seem to have been a particularly unusual name in England.
Is he even the ancestor of the Concord Mass Deane family?

He's got an immigrant in tail, but there doesn't seem to be anything on the immigrant's origins except the usual bold but bald assertions by secondary "sources".
Indeed, we could engage in lengthy rants about the shortcomings of the genealogy associated with this profile, but the bottom line for this particular questioner is still the same. ;-)
Perhaps we could, but in this case we didn't.  And you'd already answered the question.
Richard I think I have found the link.  Michael's mother was from Kent. Michael's descendant William was born in South Chard and his daughter Elizabeth was born in 1608 in Avebury, England and died 1635 in Plymouth, MA.  I think this is my line of Deane's - I will need to check details and sources.  Hopeful!
I think it is very likely indeed.
Hello Jeremy.

I see that I responded to this discussion in 2016.You  are probably correct. I would have to re study that line to defend my then comments. In all probabiility I was wrong. When I have time I  will revisit this heritage.

I should have said I meant to offer any help I can to you Gilly -if you want or need it - like the links to the Kent Visitation info & Burke etc or the wills ...
Thank you Jeremy I appreciate your kindness. I will keep in touch. Just doing a few last minute things before New Zealand (where I live) goes into lockdown.Stay safe.

Richard;;, I think this is well worth investigating. I have a great interest in the Deane Families and their movements. It may be worth checking the Full Text of "The book of Dene, Deane, Adeane. A genealogical history"The book of Dene, Deane, Adeane. A genealogical history". I will see what I can find out. Turn the pages of this book and refer to pp 3,4, & 5. Start at the bottom of p. 3 "Alured had three sons...... " I believe I have located the descendants of this family but I will need to find adequate sources.
