The following timeline displays various vita for the Rutherford and Alleine relations as commonly described. Many of the key dates of interest are not known. For example, while we know that John Rutherford died at age 82, we know neither his DOB nor his DOD. Likewise, we do not have any data on Isabella Alleine's DOB or DOD. These data have been backfilled to the extent possible based on certain assumptions:

Isabella Alleine is assumed to be the daughter of Rev. Joseph Alleine, not his granddaughter, nor descended from one of Rev. Joseph's brothers. This is probably an unsound assumption, but reflects the usual view of the family lineage as presented in White 1902.
John Rutherford is assumed to be the son of James Rutherford of Utrecht. This is also a commonly encountered view, but one not obviously supported with primary data.

This presentation is NOT intended to show what I think the correct family relations are. its sole purpose to show whether it is mechnaically possible for the above two assumptions to be true, given what we know about the Vita of other parties involved in the discussion.

In general, there does not seem to be any basis for rejecting the above assumptions simply based on Vita. The relationships are commonly described could conceivably be correct as shown here. There are, however, good reasons for rejecting both assumptions based on other issues. In particular, the estate records for neither James Rutherford of Utrecht, and Joseph Alleine include any indication that they had surviving children. There may be reasons why surviving children might not have appeared in the estate records, but their absence requires explanation. For example, it might be that in either or both cases all surviving offspring were as yet infants, and therefore might not have been mentioned in the will. While this is a possibility, accepting it would require primary data confirming that both gentlement did indeed have surviving children, and specifically that John Rutherford was the son of James of Utrecht, and Isabella the daughter of Joseph Alleine.
