I am currently researching the French surname Lepine and its variants found within Great Britain, the Channel Islands and Ireland, in what is in effect a one name study.
Initially I was looking into one line only but expanded this so I could unravel the various branches from one another.
One Huguenot Lepine family originated in Normandy and came to Canterbury, Kent, in the late 1500s.
Another branch were from Picardie, Oise, and started to come to London in 1679.
A further Lepine family in the 1600s in England were from Niort in France.
There are no doubt more branches.
If anyone has any information on any branch of a family with the name Lepine who resided in Britain before 1900 then please contact me.
Variants of this name (including those examples incorrectly transcribed) are:
de l'Epine, de L'Epine, De l'Epine, de l'Espine, de L'Espine, De l'Espine, de Lepin, de Lpine, de Lespine, dePine, Delepeine, Delepine, Delepinne, Delespine, Delespinne, Delispine, Depine, Deslespaine, Dupine, L'Epine, L'Epine, L'Espine, Lapine, Le Pine, Le Pone, Leepine, Lefine, Lepeane, Lepene, Lepina, Lepine, Lpine, Leping, Lepinne, Lepire, Lepoin, Lepoine, Lepone, Leponne, Lepore, Lespaine, Lespine, Lespinne, Lipine, Lopina, Lupine, Sepine and Seppine.
Some members apparently dropped the first part to become Pine, while others apparently altered it to the English translation of Thorn.
