He is also listed as one of the first settlers of Taunton and is mentioned many times in the land and court records there.

Eleanor is not universally accepted as the wife of Walter Deane. There is a will of one William Cogan of England which specifically mentions "my daughter Eleanor Deane, wife of Walter Deane of New England". Yet several persons still maintain that there is also proof that she was Eleanor Strong, not Eleanor Cogan. In 1777 Governor Caleb Strong states that John Strong's sister came with him to New England and later married a Dean. For further information see "Plymouth Colony, its history and people" by Aubrey Stratton or The American Genealogist issue 59 of 1983; pg 277.
