Its been some time since you posted this message so you may already know this information, but here it is anyway.
I believe that the Russian name Blumsohn that you mention is unconnected to your Blumsons. The English name Blumson is derived from an English place name, probably Bluntisham in Huntingdonshire although it could be Blunsdon in Wiltshire or Blundeston in Suffolk. There is a record of a John de Bluntsham existing in 1229 and a John Bluntsham in 1406. The name has possibly evolved through several forms as follows: Bluntisham, Bluntsham, Blunsom, Blumsome and to its present day forms of Blumsom and Blumson. The earliest that the family name can be traced back to as far as I know is 1719 when a Robert Blumsom was born in Putney. His son Thomas was also born in Putney but moved to Bethnal Green in the east end of London where the family settled and expanded over the next two centuries. I hope this helps.
