Deadman Early Origins



The surname Deadman was first found in Suffolk at Debenham, a large village and civil parish in the Mid Suffolk district that dates back to the Domesday Book of 1086 where it was listed as Depbenham. [1]CITATION[CLOSE]
Williams, Dr Ann. And G.H. Martin, Eds., Domesday Book A Complete Translation. London: Penguin, 1992. Print. (ISBN 0-141-00523-8)
The place name literally means "homestead or village by the deep river," from the Old English words "deope" + "ham." [2]CITATION[CLOSE]
Mills, A.D., Dictionary of English Place-Names. Oxford: Oxford University Press, 1991. Print. (ISBN 0-19-869156-4)
Another reference claims the place name derives its name from its situation on the river Deben, which rises at some distance above the town. The kings of the East Angles are said to have held their courts at Debenham, where they had a palace. Originally a market town, Debenham was originally in the union of Bosmere and Claydon, hundred of Thredling and was held by William de Gulafra from Robert Malet who was recorded in the Domesday Book. At that time, Debenham consisted of two churches, St. Mary and St. Andrew and held twenty pigs and twenty eight goats and was noted for it's Norman church.
