Christiana married George DUNBAR 10th Earl of Dunbar, Lord of Man and Annandale, son of Sir Patrick DUNBAR and Isabella RANDOLPH.1 2 3 (George DUNBAR 10th Earl of Dunbar, Lord of Man and Annandale was born about 1340 and died after 8 September 1422 1.)
"The Earl (George 10th Earl) married a lady named Christiana, who is said to have been the daughter of Sir Alexander Seton of Seton .... " (page 273)
from Scots Peerage (vol 3)
"The issue of this marriage (between Margaret, Lady of Seton, and Alan de Wyntoun) was : -
1. William, of whom below.
2. Margaret (or Christiana), who is supposed to have been married to George, tenth Earl of Dunbar."
from Scots Peerage (vol 8)
"p. 273, 1. 24, delete whole line, and insert * to have been a Seton but may have been the daughter of Alan de Wyntoun who married the heiress of Seton and seems to have taken her name (ex inform. Colonel the Hon. R. E. Boyle)."
from Scots Peerage (vol 9 Addenda et Corrigenda)
The first quotation points to the father of Margaret being Sir Alexander Seton of that Ilk, 'the son', who married Margaret Murray.
Volume 8, however, points out that the account by Andrew de Wyntoun of the abduction of Margaret was "heartily supported and aided" (page 570) by William Murray of Edinburgh Castle, brother in law of Sir Alexander Seton.
Footnote 4 of page 570 adds:
"If Murray abetted De Wyntoun, the heiress can hardly have been, as some have held, daughter of the marriage between his own sister Margaret and Sir Alexander Seton 'the son,' which is mentioned above as recorded in the old Seton family pedigree."
The correction in Volume 9 confirms the parentage suggested in Volume 8. 1 2 3
