Dear Sara, I would love to find out more about the Blumsons. That book you spoke of sounds great. Have you had any luck finding out about it or how I can get a copy, even the name of the author and book title would help. Dee Nairn
I found the Blumson family in the 1901 census. Joseph Blumson age 56 born London, Bethnal Green, Occupation Chairmaker Eliza Blumson -wife- aged 53yrs. Born London Aldersgate. Arthur - son - aged 20yrs. Born Essex, Walthamstow. Occupation - woodcaster
Apparently in Russia Blumson is "Blumsohn" and is a jewish name.Some Russian Blumsons did come to England. But I have not found a connection.
