Kyrl was born circa 1803 at Cork, Ireland.2,3 He was the son of William Deane and Susanna Jervis.1

His father died 16 October 1810 at the approximate age of 53.

Kyrl Allen Deane married Mary Lucinda Gregg, daughter of William Gregg and Susana Nisbett, in 1825 at Cork.4

On Saturday, 6 July 1833 he became a member of the Number 8 Lodge of Freemasons in Cork.5

A man named Kyrl Allen Deane of Cork was a salt and lime manufacturer, dealer and chapman, who became bankrupt by November 1834.6,7,8 Kyrl (and presumably his spouse Mary) lived in 1837 at Pembroke Street, in Cork.9

On 30 May 1837 Kyrl and William Henry Gregg -perhaps his wife's father or her brother - dissolved their partnership as attorneys in Cork.10 He was Clerk to the Board of Guardians for the Poor of Cork Union on 28 April 1840 at Cork.11,12 Kyrl and Mary Lucinda Gregg became the parents of Alexander Charles Deane on Sunday, 4 October 1840 at Cork.13,14 Kyrl Allen Deane was a solicitor in 1842 at 2 Upper Ormand Quay, in Dublin, and also working from the Commercial Buildings in Cork.15

Kyrl was on the committee of management for the Cork Art Union, whose remit was 'promoting the fine arts in the south of Ireland'. Also on the committee were Sir Thomas Deane (his first cousin) and an Alexander W. Deane.16

On 24 July 1843 Kyrl attended a hearing with the Mayor of Cork concerning the payment of city rates, where he represented the rate collector who was ultimately paid the full amount of his costs.17

Kyrl was involved in a court case in Cork concering the Poor Law Guardians in August 1845.18

In 1846 he was listed as being at 71 Dane Street, in Dublin. This central site may have been his office, not his house.19 Additionally, he seemed to have an office at 67 South Mall, in Cork.20 He was the Returning Officer and Clerk to the Board of Guardians in 1846 at Cork.11,21 He was a notary in 1846.20 In April 1846 he contributed £1 to the relief of the poor.22

He had an office at 6 Blessington Street, in Dublin, in 1847.23

Kyrl was ignomiously removed from his position of Clerk to the Guardians of the Cork Union and lost his residence on 27 January 1847:
"...I deem Kyril Allen Deane unfit for the office of Clerk to the Guardians of the Cork Union, and in persuance of the provisions of the said act, and in execution of the powers thereby vested in me in this behalf, I do remove him from the said office. And I do hereby order and direct that the said Kyrl Allen Deane shall forthwith cease to exercise any of the powers or perform any of the duties of the said office.
And I do hereby order and direct that the said Kyril Allen Deane, as soon as may be after the receipt of this order, to quit the Workhouse of the said union, and the premises appertaining or belonging thereto."24

It was later estimated that Kyrl had embezzelled £2,046.25 He (and presumably his spouse Mary) moved to Boulogne-Sur-Mer, Pas-de-Calais, France, circa 1848.1

Kyrl Allen Deane emigrated from London or Plymouth on 12 July 1852 on the 'Prince Regent' with his 11 year-old son Alexander It would seem that he abandoned the rest of his family in Ireland.13,26,27,28 He arrived on 15 October 1852 at Port Adelaide, South Australia.13,26,27,28

He was a Managing Clerk in the firm of Messrs. Thomas Powell, Rudall, & Co., Auctioneers, Commission Merchants, and Land Agents.29

Kyrl left his work in the office and entered into a partnership on 2 April 1855 with Thomas Flint to run a general merchants and commission agent.29 As of September 1869, Kyrl Allen Deane was also known as Allen Deane.30 The partnership lasted a little over 5 years, when it was dissolved.31 He was a wine, spirit and commission merchant in July 1857.31

On 28 July 1858 an Allen Deane was taken to court for " sending certain goods of dangerous character upon the said railway, namely, a box containing lucifer matches, without marking the same, or sending notice to the railway authorities of the nature of such goods". The court imposed the penalty of £20 and costs, amounting together to £21 14s.32

Kyrl apparently gradually went down in the world after opening the wine shop, taking up with a woman called Rosanna Reed, with whom he had at least 3 children. In a letter, his brother Kearns mentions "that woman" and states he would like to smash her face in.1

An Allen Deane became an agent for the Border Watch newspaper August 1864.33 He tried to sue his children in Australia to look after him in his old age. circa 1870.1 He was a clerk in September 1873.34

Kyrl was involved in an affray on 14 August 1878:
"William Beediam, a young man, was charged with unlawfully beating Kyrl Allen Dean, at Adelaide, on August 14. Fined 5s."35



Kyrl Allen Deane married Rosanna Reed on Friday, 27 September 1878 at Adelaide. They married after having had 3 children and spending more than 16 years together and just 6 weeks before his death..36 Kyrl lived on 1 December 1878 at at Lower North Road in the Adelaide suburb of Prospect.2

Kyrl died on 14 December 1878 at Prospect.13,37 His body was interred at North Road cemetery on 16 December 1878 at the Adelaide suburb of Bowden.38
