DEAN Family HistoryThis interesting surname of English origin is either a locational name from places so called in many parts of England, or, a topographical name for someone dwelling in a valley, both deriving from the Middle English "dene" (Old English pre 7th Century "denu") meaning "valley". It may also be a nickname for someone thought to resemble a dean, an ecclesiastical official who was the head of a chapter of cannons in a cathedral, or more probably an occupational name for a servant of a dean, deriving from the Middle English "deen" when is a borrowing of the Old French "D(e)ien", itself coming from the Latin "decanus", meaning "a leader of ten men"...
