ISHAM Family History

This unusual name has many alternative spellings, including Isham, Easom, Easome, Essam, Easum and Esom, however the origin is believed to be locational and to derive from the town of Heysham in North Lancashire, although it has also been suggested that the name is a dialectal transposition of East Ham, found in both London and Cheshire. Locational surnames were usually acquired by a local landowner, or by the lord of the manor, and especially by those former inhabitants of a place who had moved to another area, and were thereafter best identified by the name of their birthplace.
