Edward Rutherford, 13th Baron Tennington was the second son, and heir, of the 12th Baron Tennington and Serena Blakeney. He married Marguerite Blakeney and had a son - the 14th Baron Tennington - and a daughter: Alice Rutherford, mother of Tarzan. The family are discussed by Philip José Farmer in Tarzan Alive, who indicates that they also had a number of other daughters. It remains to be seen if these other daughters became the ancestors of any prominent members of the extended Wold Newton Family.
