Margaret Taylor Rutherford

Sadly Margaret Rutherford is no documented relation, but who knows ? I'm a firm fan of one of the great 20th Century comedy actresses. For biographical details there is lots on the tinternet, but her origins are equally interesting, if tragic.

We've always wondered why her father changed his name to Rutherford.

(Since our family was one of the few sets about London at the time.) Possibly the source lies in one of the Benn, Wedgewood Benn, or Stansgate bios.
