This is a legal term. To depose is to testify or give evidence under oath. If you are the deponent, you are the one making the oath.

Read the sentence like this: "Every affidavit shall state which [of the facts deposed to] are within the deponents knowledge." As James has explained, a witness "deposes". So the witness gives a testimony regarding (ie. "to") what facts that person knows. Every affidavit needs to tell us which facts the witness actually knows about, ie. the witness can't speculate or report someone else's observations.

Further to my answer above, you may also be wondering about making a statement "under oath". Basically, if someone testifies under oath (in written form in this case), then they must not lie. If they are caught lying, this is effectively perjury, which is a serious offence. I'm a lawyer by the way, so I deal with this stuff every day!

Sound like legalese.
