Xiineagre. — Among the earliest of the name of Rutherford
are to be found IIoeertds, Dominus de Rutherfoed, witness
to a charter granted by David I. to Gervasus Ridal 1140, and
ii Rutherford of Rordesforde in the charter of Willi.\m the
Lion 11o5. During the period from 1165 to 1249 occur the
names of Gbegoey and Nicholas Retherfohd. Sir Robert
RcTHERFORD, the friend of Robert Bruce, is mentioned in
Barbour's history of that prince. In 1398, Sir Richard
EcTHERFORD, of that ilk, was Ambassador to the Court of
England, and in 1400 was one of the Wardens of the Marches.
By his wife, Jane Douglas, he had three sons, James, who s,
film, had a charter of the lands of Lethbertshiels and others ;
John, ancestor of Rutherford, of Hunthill, who eventually
enjoyed the honours and titles of Lord Rutherford and Earl of
Teviot ; and Nichol, who obtained charters of the lands of
Mackerston and others, and was ancestor of the Rutherfords
of Hundalee. James and Nichol were appointed guarantees
of a treaty with the English 1449.

James Rutherford, son of the last-mentioned James,
obtained, 1457, a charter of lands to him and his spouse,
Margaret Eisldne, dau. of Lord Erskine. He had a grant
from James IV. of the lands of Edgerston in 1492, and shortly
after of the lands of Rutherford and Wells. By his said wife
lie had two sons, Philip and Tliomas. The elder son,

Philip Rutherfokd, rn. Elizabeth, dau. of Waller Kcr, of
Cessford, ancestor of the Dukes of Roxburghe, and had (witli
a son, Richard, who d. s. p.), two daus., the elder, Helen, m.
twice, and d. s. p.; the younger. Christian, in. James Stuart,
ancestor to the Earls of Traquair, and through her the estates
of Rutherford and Wells passed to the family of Stuart; and
the Earls of Traquair, in right of this marriage, quartered the
arms of Rutherford with their own. On the death of the above
Richard without issue, the lands and barony of Edgerston
reverted to his uncle, Thomas, heir male of the family ; and
'liis son, Robert, obtained a confirmation of the same under
the Great seal 1559. This Robert was s. by his son,

Thomas Rutherford, commonly called the Black Laird of

Rutherford, renowned for the exploits of liimself and his nine
sons on the borders. His son,

Richard Rutherford, of that ilk, in. the granddau. of the
Laird of Buccleuch, and had a son,

Robert Rutherford, who m. Margaret Riddell, dau. of the
Laird of that ilk, and had a son,

John Rutherford, of that ilk, who acted a gallant and
d-stinguished part in the civil war, and was instrumental in
restoring Charles II. He in. Barbara Abernethy, dau. of the
Bishop of Caithness (by his wife, a dau. cf Murray, of Philip-
haugb), and had issue, surviving Bons,

Andrew, s. to the estates in 1686, and d. s. p. 1718.

Thomas, successor to his brother.

Robert, became Rutherford of Rowland, and was ancestor

(through the female line) of Sir Walter Scott, Bart, of


The 2nd surviving son,

Thomas Rutherford, of that ilk, cf Edgerston and Wells,
acquired the lands of Bonjedward and Moimthooly, together
with the lands of Hunthill and Scraisburgh, from Robert,
Lord Rutherford, who likewise assigned to Tliomas (with the
estate) the title of Lord Rutherford, in like manner as it had
been assigned to his brothers and to him by the Earl of Teviot,
by virtue of the patent, which was the only right they "nad.
But Thomas coutented himself with assigning it in like
manner to his son and successor, who likewise declined
claiming it. It was, however, assumed by Capt. John Ruther-
ford, collateral heir male, descended from Richard Rutherford,
of Littlehaugh, and since by others. He m. Susanna, dau.
and heir of Riddell, of Minto, and had issue (with five daus.),
one son.

Sir John Rutherford, of that ilk, s. his father 1720. He
m. 1st, 1710, Elizabeth Cairncross, heir of the ancient and
honourable family of Colmslie, and had nineteen children, of
whom the eldest son, John, was ancestor (in the female line;
of William Oliver-Rutherfurd, Esq. of Edgerston : the 2nd son
was Thomas, of whose line we treat ; another son, Eobert, a
Baron of the Russian Empire, purchased back, 1779, the old
