Changes of spelling have occurred in most surnames. The earliest explanation is that during the early development of the French language, names were not yet fixed in spelling. Usually a person gave his version of his name, phonetically, to a scribe, a priest, or a recorder. This depended on accent, and local accents frequently changed the spelling of a name. Some variables were adopted by different branches of the family name. Hence, there are some spelling variations of the name La Coursiere, including Lacourse, Lacour, Lacoursier, Cours, La Cours, De Cours, Course, Coursier, Courcier, Courcière, Coursière, La Courcière, La Coursière, Lacourciere, Lacourcière, Lacoursiere and many more.
