RUTHERFORD ~— “Tradition says that the name originated through one of the followers of King Rather of Scots carrying the King high and dry over the swollen Tweed whilst on a warlike expedition. The King conferred lands on the man in token of his ready resource. 0n the other hand, it is denied that such a king as Ruther existed An alternative explanation of the origin of the name is merely relating to the colour of the bed of the River Weed. The famiiy belong to Roxburghshire, where the village of Rutherford is —— Angus Rutherford (Glasgow)"
