My name is Ian Haysom. I was born in Hull in Yorkshire. I have attempted to trace some of my family, here's what I found out. I went to the Family Record Centre in central London. This holds the births, deaths and marriage details, amongst other info, that used to be in St. Catherine's House. I looked at every Haysom born between 1890 and 1910. In summary there seems to be four distinct threads. In Hull, there were 10 births, one of them my grandfather; in London there were 11 births; in Wales and the West Country there were 5 births; and in Southampton/Hampshire there were 5 births. I do not have exact birth dates for all of these only the year and the quarter e.g. Jan-Mar 1907 or Apr-June 1908. My grandfather was James Robert Haysom born 16th Sept 1899 in Hull. His father was Charles and mother Elizabeth. Charles is shown as a shipwright. If this is of any interest or help to anyone, please reply.
