Edward Deane (?–?)

Edward Deane/Dease was a seaman on the Lady Penrhyn when he arrived at Sydney in January 1788 as part of the First Fleet. He cohabited with Mary Jackson during the voyage and was involved in a dispute with her at Port Jackson in February 1788 over some clothing. She said in court that he had tried to persuade her to go on board with him while his ship was in harbour.
