Families covered: Rawson of Beckfoot, Rawson of Halifax, Rawson of Ingrow, Rawson of Stonyroyd

BLG1952 identifies the arms of the following family as "Per fesse wavy sa. and az., guttée d'or, a quadrangular castle with four towers, arg. on a cheif of three ravens heads erased of the first". That suggests that it may have been a cadet branch of one of the families shown on Rawson1.
