Yes the name is from the French region if Maine.  De = from Maine, Demaine. Name first recorded in 12th century France.  I have a family tree going back to the 16th century.  First reference of Demaine immigrating to New York is the early 19th century.  My family came to eastern Canada in 1880.  I'm now in western Canada.  Hi!
