    Name Meaning

    English: (i) locative name, perhaps from Haysend in Tamerton Foliot (Devon), recorded in the surname of John de Hayeshende, 1332 in Subsidy Rolls (Devon). The alteration of -send to -som and -son would be unexceptional. (ii) alternatively it might, like Heesom , be an altered form of Eastham , but the evidence is inconclusive. (iii) possibly a variant of Hayson (2), but medieval names in -son are rare in SW England, where this surname is mainly found.
