This website/blog is about a family that moved almost en mass from old world (the UK) at the turn of the last century to make a new life in the new world — in Toronto, Canada.
The Deans moved from a life of working on the estates of the titled English to one of building their own lives and houses in Deer Park and North Toronto.
Our branch of the Deans originates in Cambridgeshire, England. To see more go to: Deans in Cambridgeshire.
