Dear friend, my maiden name isLayne.I don't have the info you're looking for.But I'd like to share some facts. My father is one of the Layne's from Berbice,Guyana,South America.He is 60 yrs.old. His mother's name was Elvira Layne. He had a brother named George who died several years ago,in Brooklyn New York. I have a cousin named Edison Layne who should be in his 30's,but I don't know where he lives.I don't quite know who the first Layne's were to arrive in South America, but I believe they were Dutch,since Layne is a Dutch surname.God Bless you as you search your roots.
