"The deposition of Mr John Deane aged 58 yeares ot thereabouts, 6 February,

depo'ts wife. Recorded in Richmond County xth Feb^ry: Ano Dom 1706." Which
daughter married Deane?

Anne must have been a daughter by John's first wife, as she was married by
1668. Mary Burden, Sarah, and Esther were Sarah -- Fleete Walker's
daughters. Three other daughters were by the first wife; unless there were
unknown children, these must be Frances, Jane, and Elizabeth.

And here's Sarah's will:
