Hello- I too have Caines ancestry spelled this way. I was told that when it is spelled this way the original spelling was Caynes or
Kaynes and they are descendants of a Norman Knight called DeKaynes that came over with William the Conqueror from France- don't laugh too hard- most Caines families will tell the same tale. But there is a large group of Caines spelled this way in Somerset and it was an area where some of William's
relatives held land and the Church at Crewkerne was connected to the Abby at Caen in Normandy. Its a fairly rare name.
