Deeb Early Origins



The surname Deeb was first found in Cheshire where they held a family seat. The Saxon influence of English history diminished after the Battle of Hastings in 1066. The language of the courts was French for the next three centuries and the Norman ambience prevailed. But Saxon surnames survived and the family name was first referenced in the 13th century when held estates in that shire. Much conjecture has arisen about the origin of this name. Early records are scanty. Many have attributed the name to be Huguenot. This must be seriously questioned. We can find no similar name on the continent. However, in the Wirral in Cheshire we find the name commonly used for a resident by the banks of the River Dee. The name Dee or Du, meaning black, is Welsh and both names proliferate throughout Shropshire and Herefordshire.
