Hi Jeff,
I read your "Easum" information with interest as there seems to be come differing info out there. In our family, the name of my grandfather was d'Easum and he was a minister in the Episcopalian/Anglican Church in England and he was sent on a mission to Canada where he and his descedndants remained. The name was spelled "d'Easum" or "of Easum". In 1881, the largest grouping of the Easum name was in Brighton then North and NW London. We don't know why the "d" was put in front of the name but it appears to have been added and taken off down the line.

However, there is a belief in our family that the name comes from "Isham", a name found in the Doomsday Book in England and this family centered in Northamptonshire. There is an Isham family estate there which I believe is restored and open to the public.

Hope this is of interest,
