The surname Rutherford comes from territorial origins, taken from the lands of Rutherford in the parish of Maxton in Roxburghshire. The name is of an ancient and once powerful Border family. The meaning and origin of the place name is simply from the old English hrythera ford, which means a ford for cattle.
The names Gregory and Nicolas de Rutherford, or Rutheford, were recorded for during the reigns of both King William I and his son, King Alexander II.
