Look up Deedy in Websters Dictionary and you will see the following definition - \Deed"y\, a. Industrious; active. [R.] --Cowper. But to me Deedy is simply my last name and not a very common one at that. My Father always said "find yourself in a strange city? Open a phone book, find a Deedy and give them a call - chances are they are a relative." So, for all the Deedy's out there hello and welcome.

Surname Profiler - Missing Deedy's...

This Surname Profiler search tool is pretty cool. You can see how Surnames have migrated across Great Britain from 1881 to 1998. I did search for Deedy and came up blank (they don't allow you to search Ireland). But plugging in Deed got some interesting results. Search for Deed in 1881 then again in 1998.

A recent research project based at University College London (UCL) has investigated the distribution of surnames in Great Britain, both current and historic, in order to understand patterns of regional economic development, population movement and cultural identity. This website allows users to search the databases that we have created, and to trace the geography and history of their family names.
