This surname comes from the lands or barony of Ralston near Paisley, in Renfrewshire.
It is said that a younger son of one of the Earls of Fife, Ralph, was given a grant for the lands of Ralston from the High Steward of Scotland, however, these claims have been refuted by some, stating that the arms did not bear a lion rampant, the arms of the old Earls of Fife, but instead three acorns on a bend, suggesting that this person was of the same stock as those with the surname Muirhead.
