Ruthven, name of a noble family in Scotland, believed to trace its ancestry to Thor, a Saxon or Dane, who in the time of King David I settled in Scotland. The name is derived from lands in Perthshire held by the family, several members of which were earls of Gowrie in the 16th cent. Sir William de Ruthven, d. 1528, was the 1st lord of Ruthven, the title being conferred by James III in 1488. His grandson, Patrick Ruthven, 3rd Lord of Ruthven, 1520?-1566, was a firm supporter of Protestant doctrines. He acted on various commissions appointed by the lords of the congregations to deal with the queen regent, Mary of Guise, and with Elizabeth I of England, and he served later as a privy councilor to Mary Queen of Scots. He took a leading part in the murder [1566, of David] Rizzio and wrote a memoir of the affair which still exists in manuscript in the British Museum. He fled to England, where he died shortly after. His son, William Ruthven, 4th Lord of Ruthven ,1541? - 1584, was created 1st earl of Gowrie in 1581. Associated with his father in the murder of Rizzo, he also fled to England, where he remained until pardoned (1567) by the queen.
