The ancestors of the Deary family lived among the ancient Anglo-Saxon tribes of Britain. Deary was a name given to a beloved person or as a term of endearment. The surname Deary also derived from the animal deer.

Deary Early Origins

The Great Migration



In an attempt to escape the chaos experienced in England, many English families boarded overcrowded and diseased ships sailing for the shores of North America and other British colonies. Those families hardy enough, and lucky enough, to make the passage intact were rewarded with land and a social environment less prone to religious and political persecution. Many of these families became important contributors to the young colonies in which they settled. Early immigration and passenger lists have documented some of the first Dearys to arrive on North American shores:
