  General Notes:

"In the year 1347, Lady Margaret Seton was forcibly abducted by a neighboring baron named Alan de Winton, a distant kinsman of her own and a cadet of the Seton family. Andrew Wyntoun relates the case in his Orygynale Cronykil of Scotland, saying: "Dat yhere Alene de Wyntoun tuk the yhoung Lady Setoun and weddit hyr than till hys wyf." This outrage caused a bloody contest in Lothian; on which occasion, says Fordun, a hundred ploughs were laid aside from labour. A romantic incident of this that when Margaret was rescued and Alan confronted with the Seton family, she was handed a ring and a dagger, with permission to give him either Love or Death. She gave him the ring, and they were happy ever afterward. Alan de Winton assumed his wife's name, and died in the Holy Land...."

"Among those who later swore fealty to Edward I of England, in 1296, were Alan (Aleyn) de Wynton, Thomas de Wynton and Gode de Wynton"
