names were influenced by the evolution of the English language, as it incorporated elements of French, Latin, and other languages. Although Medieval scribes and church officials recorded names as they sounded, so it is common to find one person referred to by several different spellings of his surname, even the most literate people varied the spelling of their own names. Variations of the name Ione include Ion, Ionn, Ione, Ionne, Iyon, Iyonne and others.

Migration of the Ione family to the New World and Oceana

By the latter half of the 19th century the family had immigrated to Canada, where John Ion was registered in Ontario in 1865..
