Origins of surname

This name is a corruption of l'aisné, meaning the eldest son.

Early records

Although the list of variants below show records in Jersey as early as the 14th century, it is unlikely that any of these have any link to more recent Laisney family members.

The family which is present in Jersey today can only trace its ancestry in the island back to the mid 19th century, with the arrival of Paul Alexander (1837-1919) from France. He would eventually emigrate to Canada, where he died, but leaving descendants in Jersey.
