Deanmill was named after Alfred Dean, the first long term manager of the mill (and superintendent of mills), but was known as "Timber Mill Number 1" because it was one of three state government owned timber mills. As more people began working in the mill a township formed surrounding it.
...It was reported that the recommendation of the committee that No. 1 State Sawmill, near Manjimup, should be named Deanmill, had been adopted by the Lands Department. The name was given in honour of Mr. Alfred Dean, who was the first manager of the mill and who served the sawmills at that and in connection with other mills from 1914 to 1931, when he retired. He is now residing at Cottesloe.
