Family and Education
The Public Ledger in 1779 wrote about Dehany: ‘Very lately come into Parliament, attached to the Duke of Bolton, and votes in the minority.’ Dehany was friendly with Edward Morant, also a West Indian and closely connected with the Duke of Bolton, and he was returned on Bolton’s interest for St. Ives. In Robinson’s list on the contractors bill, 12 Feb. 1779, he is marked ‘contra, present’, and in each of the six recorded divisions 1779-80 voted with Opposition. There is no record of his having spoken in the House. He did not stand in 1780.
Dehany died 27 Oct. 1809.
