John was from Tresco.

William was born well before marriage.

At the time of John’s baptism in 1777 the family was noted as living at Tresco.

At the time of John and Ann’s marriage in 1803 John was noted as a “bachelor” and Ann a “spinster”, both of Tresco. They were married by banns by David Evans; John Deason made his mark “X” - Ann did not; witnesses A Mackey and Peter Nickalls [sic].

At the time of the baptism of son, John, in 1805 the family was either living on St Agnes (Duff research (2005) or Tresco (Baxter research (1975). At the time of the baptisms of Ann (1807), Thomas (1809), Rebecca (1811), Elizabeth (1813), Mary (1815) and Caroline (1818) the family was living on Tresco.

John is likely to be the ‘John Deason’ part owner, with Abraham Nicholls, John Nicholls, Samuel Nicholls and Peter Nicholls (see note) and others of the Ranger II, registered 1813, Tresco, 19 tons, 1868, ‘ceased to exist’ 1868. Note: All of the above Nicholls, except Samuel, are recorded in the 1841 Census as living on Tresco.

At the time of the marriage of Caroline (1837) John was noted as a “farmer”.

At the time of John’s burial in 1859 he was noted as aged 77 years and from Tresco.

At the time of Ann’s burial in 1868 she was noted as aged 89 years and from Tresco.
