Absalom Rothschild is briefly mentioned by Philip José Farmer in Tarzan Alive as a member "of that illustrious family". Considering that his daughter Ruth Rothschild married Jewish immigrant to Britain Sir John Jansenius, it seems that Absalom must be a member of the European banking dynasty, possibly even a son of Nathan Mayer Rothschild, who was the member of the family who initially settled in London.

Absalom can be traced as the great-grandfather of William Cecil Arthur Clayton, 7th Duke of Greystoke. Farmer indicates that his family possessed geneaological knowledge supposedly tracing their descent back to King David.
