The Rutherfords of Australia

Updated June 4, 2006

Researching the Rutherfords of Australia.
James Smyth Rutherford was born 1842 in (I believe)Belfast, Ireland. He married Elizabeth Totton in St Annes Church of Ireland Belfast 1862. They produced a son James in 1864 then migrated to Port Philip Aust on the Oceanica in 1865.

I have reasonable family history from there. Finding James forefathers is proving to be very difficult, at the moment I am exploring a line, in Newcastle upon Tyne. Experiencing the same difficulty with Totton. Father was James, a servant, according to marriage cert.

Other names: McSween, Shaw, West, Wells, Omant, Murdoch, Hayes, Goss, Neary etc.

Will freely share information with other genuine researchers.
