lazzy Spelling Variations
spelling variations. This is largely due to the fact that Old and Middle English lacked any spelling rules when Norman French was introduced in the 11th century. The languages of the English courts at that time were French and Latin. These various languages mixed quite freely in the evolving social milieu. The final element of this mix is that medieval scribes spelled words according to their sounds rather than any definite rules, so a name was often spelled in as many different ways as the number of documents it appeared in. The name was spelled Lacey, Lacy, Lassey, Lassy, de Lacey, de Lacy and others.

Migration of the lazzy family to the New World and Oceana

Faced with persecution and starvation at home, the open frontiers and generally less oppressive social environment of the New World seemed tantalizing indeed to many English people. The trip was difficult, and not all made it unscathed, but many of those who did get to Canada and the United States made important contributions to the young nations in which they settled. Some of the first North American settlers with lazzy name or one of its variants: Lawrence Lacey, who settled in New England between 1620 and 1650; Jane Lacy, who sailed to Barbados in 1660; Elianor Lacy, who arrived in New England in 1663.
