Much importance, however, cannot be attached to the correctness of Christian names given in these old records, as, amongst numberless instances of errors, John the Cock appears called James in one public document. His son and heir, Thomas Ruthirfurd, had charter under the Great Seal, 30th June 161 2, to himself, " filio et haeredi Johannis Ruthirfurde de Hunthill et Jeanae sposae ejus," of various lands.

Extract from The Scots Peerage (Volume VII) by Sir James Balfour Paul (Edinburgh 1910) page 376-377 (http://archive.org/details/cu31924092516248)

John Rutherfurd of Hunthill, called 'The Cock of Hunthill,' as son and heir, had a charter from his father to him and Agnes Kirktoun his wife, of certain lands in Seraisburgh on 18 June 1558. In 1565 he signed the bond to support Queen Mary, on 6 April 1659 the bond to the King by the barons and others on the Borders, for the suppression of thieves, etc., and on 12 February 1571 the bond against the Laird of Ferniehurst. He was present with all his sons at the battle of Redswyre in 1575, and on 6 March 1576, as younger of Hunthill, he had a charter by Archibald, Earl of Angus, confirming him in the lands of Hardaneheid in the barony of Oxnam. He married Agnes Kirktoun, and is also said to have married his cousin Grizel Home of the Cowdenknowe family.
