Kags,

I have no source for their marriage but familysearch has the birth of their son John on 4 Jan 1869 which was at Duns (see Batch No C117351). Agnes is listed in each census there from 1871 to 1901 but Robert is not mentioned on any of them. Scotlandspeople seems to have no record of their marriage but I was once told that they married in Coldstream. Since writing that earlier I have been unable to find a source to cannot confirm that.

If Robert Rutherford was the son of Esther Faa Blyth why would he have a different surname?

Agnes Gibson was my great great aunt born 1844 in Gordon and her parents were Robert Gibson (b.1795 Nenthorn) and Janet Gibson (b.1806 Forfar) as I mentioned in my post on 5 June.

I do not know who Robert Rutherford's parents were.
