    1549 · Book of Common Prayer

    Book of Common Prayer, a product of the English Reformation, was published in 1549 for assistance in the administration of the sacraments and other rites and ceremonies of the church according to the use of the Church of England. The book outlined morning, evening, and communion prayers and orders for baptism and marriage, thus making England a truly Protestant state.

    Name Meaning

    English: habitational name from any of numerous places so called. The vast majority, including those in Cambridgeshire, Cumbria, Dumfries, Durham, Kent, Lancashire, Lincolnshire, Norfolk, Northumberland, Oxfordshire, Sussex, and Yorkshire are named from Old English denu ‘valley’ (see Dean 1) + tūn ‘enclosure, settlement’. An isolated example in Northamptonshire appears in the Domesday Book as Dodintone meaning ‘enclosure, settlement associated with Dodda or Dudda’.
