The Alexander Ruthven you are looking for was not Master of Gowrie, but was the great grandson of John Lindsay Ruthven, illegitimate, but acknowledged son of William, the First Lord Ruthven. He was a cousin of the Earl and brother that died in 1600 in Gowrie House at the hands of King James VI of Scotland.
Ok I will have to look at it , I did this a long time ago after a cousin on my on the Trotter / Chandler side sent me information about how my Trotter family came about in the United States , any information you have please share, Thanks
Do you have more information about the Trotter and Ruthven connection?
I'm currently trying to put together the puzzle of the Ruthvens / Trotters.  Apparently the Trotter connection is through famous Alexander Ruthven's (1580-1600) cousin, also named Alexander Ruthven (1569 - 1621?). Cousin Alexander married a Lady Trotter (named Isabel, Elizabeth, or Ann).  After the disgrace of the Gowrie incident involving his Ruthven cousins, cousin Alexander and his wife and child (James) fled to England in 1602 and assumed the surname of Trotter.
Yes Please add or share any information my great grandmother was where the Trotter line come in, I got my line as far back as Alexader Ruthven but would like to connect to more cousins., this is a very interesting family we have..
