Elizabeth Cavendish, a member of the family of the Dukes of Devonshire, married George Edward Rutherford, 11th Baron Tennington. They witnessed the Wold Newton Meteorite strike and, through their sons the 12th Baron and Scott Rutherford, were the ancestors of many eminent members of the Wold Newton Family. The Rutherfords are described in Philip José Farmer's Tarzan Alive.

Wold Newton scholar Isaac Turner has argued that the 11th Baron and Elizabeth Cavendish, as described by Farmer, are the same people as the Viscount Rutherford and his wife Eliza that feature in a Regency Romance A Reputation Dies by Alice Chetwynd Ley. This book reveals that Lord and Lady Rutherford have a daughter named Anthea.
