DEANE, Charles, author, born in Biddeford, Maine, 10 November 1813. He is descended from Walter Deane, one of the first settlers of Taunton, Massachusetts. He was educated at a classical school and at Thornton academy, Sate, Maine When nineteen years of age he went to Boston, where for twenty-five years he was a merchant. He retired from business in 1864, and became a resident of Cambridge. Mr. Deane acquired a taste for the study of American history many years ago, and his collection of books is among the most valuable in New England relating to its early history. In 1856 he received the degree of LB. D. from Bowdoin. He is a member of the Phi Beta Kappa society, and of the chief historical and kindred societies of the country.. Among his publications are " Some Notices of Samuel Gorton " (1850); "First Plymouth Patent " (18,54); " Bibliography of Governor Hutchinson's Publications" (1857); "Wingfield's Discourse of Virginia" (1860); "Letters of Phillis Wheatley" (1864); Smith's "True Relation" (1866)" "Remarks on Sebastian Cabot's Nappe Monde" (1867); "Memoir of George Livermore" (1869); and "The Forms in issuing Letters Patent by the Crown of England" (1870). Several of these (and others not here enumerated) originally appeared in the publications of the Massachusetts historical society, others in the "Archaeologia Americana." Mr. Deane has edited Governor Bradford's "History of Plymouth Plantation" (1856) and Bradford's " Dialogue, or Third Conference," between old men and young men (1870), and several volumes of the Collections and Proceedings of the Massachusetts historical society, of which body he is the recording secretary.
