Rev. John Rutherford and a brother were captains in the army of William III. They participated in the crushing defeat of the Irish in the battle of the Boyne and were awarded service lands in Ireland for their service.

Rev. John Rutherford settled in Down County, Ireland, and continued his ministry which he had begun in Scotland. He married a grandaughter of the Rev. Joseph Alleine, author of The Alarm of (sic) the Unconverted. [214]

*This is assumed to be James Rutherford (c1605-c1668) aka "residenter of Utrecht", following a commonly accepted lineage for this family. Katherine's grandfather could be a different James Rutherford altogether.
