Jeffrey, a direct descendant of Martha Rutherford (née Somerville, Dr
William Somerville's sister and Mary Somerville's sister in law), was
kind enough to send us images of some of his ancestors. The images
(with brief biographical notes) are displayed below. As the images come
from before the age of photography but are on mounts with the name "R.
Jack, Jedburgh N.B. [North Britain]", it is likely that they
were photographed by Mr Jack from old paintings or
drawings. (Mr Jack was a commercial
in the period 1900 to 1920.)
