I do know of Elizabeth
and Mary Mansfield who married the Haysoms in Ringwood (though I
didn't realise they were brothers or
The brothers were sons of William Haysom and wife Deborah
Thomas was bapt. 6.2.1765
Mary married Thomas Haysom
Children: William bapt.26.12.1802
Sarah bapt. 1.7.1804
Male infant buried 10.3.1815 aged
Thomas was buried 29.12.1814 aged
Mary Haysom was buried 9.6.1833 aged
Elizabeth (?the elder daughter) married Joseph Haysom
(Joseph bapt. 22.3.1769)
Children: John bapt.
Joshua bapt. 25.12.1803
Arabella bapt. 31.3.1805 buried 10.5.1805
It appears that Elizabeth
died and was buried 12.1.1806 as Joseph, widower,remarried >4.3.1809
to Sophie Legg. I hope this is accurate, it is all from the
Ringwood Parish records, but they just wrote e.g. 'Elizabeth of Thomas'
not signifying whether wife or daughter.
The men were described
as e.g.'Thomas of Ringwood'!!
As far as the next generation goes I only
know of Joshua, who married Rebecca Tanner 8.11.1824 - they had a son
George Thomas bapt. 17.7.1825 whom I believe emigrated to Australia in
the 1850s; daughter Amelia bapt. 23.9.1827 married 1849; and sons William
* and John bapt 1833 and 1836 respectively.>
were the William Mansfield Haysom referred to in Orlando's note she
would have been 78 in 1911, so it could have been a son?
The one born
1826 would have been 85!
The other point of interest: I found a
reference to a Robert Haysom, Genealogist, at the Guildhall Library, but
have been unable to ascertain for certain who he was, but a Robert
George Bartlett Mansfield Haysom died in Nice, France in 1930. He had
been married three times :-i) Emma Bevis Haysom of Ilminster, Somerset
died in 1909 aged 49yrs leaving her effects to her husband Robert, Music
Teacher. ii) Emma Jane Mansfield Haysom of Chard, Somerset died in1922
aged 58yrs leaving estate to Robert G.B.M.Haysom, Professor of Music. iii)
Florence Charlotte Emma Mansfield Haysom widow, benefitted by £645.5s
when he died.
The second marriage was in1910 at Chard, the third in1923
at Beaminster, Dorset, and when he died he was of Sedborrow in
Thorcombe, also Dorset, but all the places mentioned are fairly close to
There are very few Roberts in my records (from the GRO 1837-1940) so I think he is the most likely candidate for genealogy.
suspect he was born in London and his first marriage could have been in
1894 in Fulham..
How this all ties up I don't know - hence my desire to
consult the 1901 census. I know there was a family of Haysoms in
Martock, near Ilminster at that time, and another in Sutton Veny near
I hope all this is of some interest to you, I know
Let me know what you think, and when I get

E Mail opposite was received from E J Franks following up my speculative
research in trying to trace the W Mansfield Haysom who became friends
with my Great Grandfather Orlando A Mansfield.
