Surname GAGNÉ

Name meaning: French occupational name for a farmer or peasant, from Old French ga(i)gnier “to cultivate or work (the land)”, Numerous variants and Americanized forms are found.[1]

Early origins:

The surname GAGNE was first found in Huntingdonshire where they held a family seat as Lords of the Manor.  After the Battle of the Hastings in 1066, many became under-tenants and adopted the Norman system of surnames which identified an under-tenant with his holdings.

There are many variations on the spelling of the name.  Old and Middle English lacked defined spelling rules, and the introduction of Norman French added an unfamiliar ingredient to the English.  French and Latin also influenced the spellings, finally Medieval scribes generally spelled words according to how they sounded.[2]
