There are way too many examples of the arms in the second and third quarters, "a chevron between three roses," in Papworth for to go through them all in the time that I have available.
Fairbairn's Crests shows "a pheon" used by Johnson (and 51 other families, though some are clearly simply variant spellings; e.g., Clark, Clarke, and Clerke).
I hope that this information is of some help to you.
