Just an opinion, but I think it was a matter of phonetics. A lot Anglophones still pronounce my name Pelkey. If you look through old Census (Censi??) you will find that census takers wrote down names the way it sounded. Where my ancestors came from (Madawaska) you see it often as Pelker, Peltier, etc....we're still all the same. I've seen the name Cyr written as Sear. Jean Baptiste Cyr as John Battishear....
