'Armorial' reports that Ralph "presumed to have been an officer in the army of Richard III., and a native of England, settled in Jersey in the early part of the sixteenth century, and became a tenant of the Seigneur of Rozel. His descendants have flourished in, and been allied by marriage to some of the best families, of both Jersey and Guernsey. In the latter island, the family, the name of which was corrupted, by local pronunciation, into Reserson, is extinct."The arms reported for this family are: 'Argent, on a chief, sable, three lions' heads, erased, or.'
