This Genealogy Web Site is dedicated to researching the Rhode Island Deake/Dake family genealogy . After the Revolutionary War, all but two lines of the Deake family changed their surname to Dake. Current research indicates that the Deake family originated in the Rhode Island colony in the very early 1700's, when two brothers who were pressed sailors jumped ship. For more information on the origins of the name, go to the BOOK INDEX and search for DEAKE SURNAME.
