Gaynor Family Genealogy Forum
That's interesting, my family too has similar variations the reasons for which are unclear. My grandfather, father and uncles went into the armed services (Royal Navy and Army) as 'Gaynon' despite the accepted spelling and pronunciation being 'Gaynor'! All are deceased now so little chance of the reasons becoming any clearer.
Maybe it resulted from an initial misspelling of my Grandfather's name (he was a Chief Petty Officer, RN) that was assumed by the others subsequently as they joined the Navy School (in Portsmouth?) in readiness for service life. My family are from Rotherham, Yorkshire.
