Why the Grasshopper?

The Gresham family crest is a golden grasshopper sitting atop a green mound. According to ancient legend, in the 13th century the founder of the family, Roger de Gresham, was abandoned as a new-born baby among long grass in Norfolk but was rescued by a woman whose attention was drawn to the child by a grasshopper.
