The Jayne Surname Project
We are interested in determining relationships for all families of the name Jayne or Jane, a possible monophyletic surname, no doubt with origins within the general area of Bristol, England but also heavily concentrated in Monmouthshire, Wales (Jayne) and Cornwall (Jane). Several separate migrations are known to the U.S, for example, one early one to Long Island, and several later ones to Pennsylvania. There is a common tradition that the name was Huguenot in origin. The name Jain when it occurs in India is probably of another source, but those families are heartily encouraged to join this group for comparative and clarification purposes.
