Introduction

An attempt to construct the Ralfe Family tree from the time of the 1820 settlers onwards.

Coat of Arms

The Ralfe coat of arms came into existence centuries ago. The process of creating coats of arms (also often called family crests) began in the eight and ninth centuries. The new art of Heraldry made it possible for families and even individual family members to have their very own coat of arms.

Initial Settlers

Records have bee found of a Robert Henry Ralfe and a James F Ralfe coming across to South Africa on the Minerva ship in the early 1800's. It is known that Robert Henry Ralfe came with his wife and four sons.
