Where did the English Isome family come from? What is the English Isome family crest and coat of arms? When did the Isome family first arrive in the United States? Where did the various branches of the family go? What is the Isome family history?The name Isome first arose amongst the Anglo-Saxon tribes of Britain. It is derived from their having lived in the parish of Isham in the county of Northampton near Kettering.
One relatively recent invention that did much to standardize English spelling was the printing press. However, before its invention even the most literate people recorded their names according to sound rather than spelling. The spelling variations under which the name Isome has appeared include Isham, Ison, Isom, Ipsam and others.

At this time, the shores of the New World beckoned many English families that felt that the social climate in England was oppressive and lacked opportunity for change. Thousands left England at great expense in ships that were overcrowded and full of disease. A great portion of these settlers never survived the journey and even a greater number arrived sick, starving, and without a penny. The survivors, however, were often greeted with greater opportunity than they could have experienced back home. These English settlers made significant contributions to those colonies that would eventually become the United States and Canada. An examination of early immigration records and passenger ship lists revealed that people bearing the name Isome arrived in North America very early: Henry Isham, who was on record in Virginia in 1626; Robert Isham, who came to Virginia in 1635, at age 14; Dan and Roger Isham, who both arrived in Virginia in 1629.
