  General Notes:

"Before the Lords were created, the family maintained a tradition of Knights, for thirteen generations until the mid-14th century, and passed this training hereditarily to every son of the House. Eventually the direct male-line of the Seton's ended with the heiress Margaret de Seton, who married her cousin Alan de Winton, himself a Seton descended from Philip de Seton who had recieved the Charter of the Lands of Winton in 1169, and whose branch of the family had taken their name of Winton from their estate of Winton which they had recieved in patrimony."

"Margaret de Seton - Heiress of Seton (She married her male-bloodline Seton cousin Alan de Winton). Among the missing charters of David II, is one to Margaret Seton, daughter of the deceased Sir Alexander Seton, of her tocher of the twenty pound land of Lammington. This marriage produced a feud in East Lothian, known as "Wyntoun's War", and occasioned "more than a hundred ploughs to be laid aside from labourit". Wyntoun was supported by William de Murray, Governor of the Castle of Edinburgh. According to Wyntoun's Chronicle, this affair took place in 1347.

m. (c1347) Alan de Wyntoun (from Seton's of Winton, from Philip de Seton's second son, Thomas)."
