Darah DOOASS, 31, Wife of Fisher.. (crossed out), Not born in County

You would need Davids Birth Cert to get Sarahs maiden name.

In 1921 Kenneth Hamilton Deane, previously known as Kenneth Henry Doouss, changed his name by deed poll.
www.london-gazette.co.uk/issues/32311/pages/3613/page.pdf

This record does list him as a physician.  Googling the name "Kenneth Hamilton Deane" gets a couple of mentions of him/his family also.

I can't believe how much information you kind people have come up with! After Christmas I am going to have to sit down and really get to grips with it all and record it for future generations. Merry Christmas to all, and please do let me know if anything else crops up.

Dear Mickied4, I see your post is from some time ago now, but I am also very interested in discovering more about the Doouss family mentioned.  I wonder if you might be willing to send me a personal message? This is my first time on this forum and hope that you are still occasionally on-line.  I would be extremely grateful for any information received.

Welcome to Rootschat Boardwalk.

mickied4 hasnt been on here since 2012 but hopefully you may still get a reply,

I am not sure how much you know about the Family or how far you have got back with your Tree.


Trees have Williams Doous's Wife Sarah as Sarah Ann BRADLEY
This seems incorrect unless she was widowed when she married William.
Given she was younger than William she may be a second Wife.

Thank you Trish1120 for the welcome and the information you kindly gave me.  What I would be very interested to know is the origin of the name Doouss - or at least our family wonders if this could be a Jewish family as that would seem to fit to that part of London and a Jewish friend has suggested this could be a possible reason for the change of name to Hamilton-Deane before beginning a career as a Doctor in a different part of the UK... Also, wonder if you know if the Kenneth Henry Doouss - (later Kenneth Hamilton-Deane) did indeed have 2 brothers who went out for the gold rush as was here suggested? Anyway, once again - thank you for your help.
