Rollason History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms




Early Origins of the Rollason family


The surname Rollason was first found in Ayrshire (Gaelic: Siorrachd Inbhir Àir), formerly a county in the southwestern Strathclyde region of Scotland, that today makes up the Council Areas of South, East, and North Ayrshire, where they held a family seat from early times and their first records appeared on the early census rolls taken by the early Kings of Scotland to determine the rate of taxation of their subjects.

Richard Rollison is the fictional wealthy bachelor living in a Mayfair flat at 22 Gresham Terrace, nicknamed the Toff, by John Creasey (1908-1973) in his 60 Toff adevntures.
