In Reply to: Re LAINE, Uge (George?) b 1874, Quebec by Butch Laine (Laisne) of 173

Likely explanation is that Laisné was changed to Laîné as accents replaced the s, not unlike several old French word (i.e. fenestre became fenêtre, window). The name also seem to have evolved as Lainez, also ponounced Lainé like in "vous avez", before becoming Lainesse, which would indicate that Lainez presumedly changed prononciation to "Laineze" before changing the spelling to Lainesse. My best guess.
