I believe the surname "Yamzon" is a Chinese-Mestizo surname. The similarly-spelled surname "Yamson" is among a list of surnames of Chinese origin belonging to Capampangan Chinese-mestizo families. It includes Spanish surnames adopted before the Claveria Edict of 1849 or those known to be solely used by Chinese-mestizos. Source: http://www.geocities.com/pampgen/chinese.htm
I hope this helps to answer your question.
