    1832 · The Scottish Reform Act

    Age 7

    The Scottish Reform Act was introduced by Parliament that introduced changes to the election laws in Scotland. The Act didn’t change the method of how the counties elected members but adopted a different solution for each pair of counties. Ultimately, it brought about boundary changes so that some burghs would have more say for the country than others.

    Dickens A Christmas Carol was first published.

    Name Meaning

    Scottish and northern English: habitational name from Rutherford in Maxton (Roxburghshire), apparently named with Old English hrīther, hrȳther ‘ox’ + ford ‘ford’, though a British Celtic origin of the type ro- ‘great’ + dubr- ‘water, river’ is also possible for the first element. Places named Rutherford in West Linton (West Lothian) and Barningham (North Yorkshire) are less likely sources of the name.
