Alexander married Margaret RUTHVEN, daughter of Sir William DE RUTHVEN and Unknown, in 1346.1 (Margaret RUTHVEN was born about 1330.)
"Alexander (or Sir Alexander), who married Margaret de Ruthven, apparently in 1346. On Easter Sunday, 16 April in that year, at Roxburgh, Sir 'William Douglas of Liddesdale engaged to make certain payments to Sir Alexander de Seton, Knight, Lord of that Ilk, in consideration of the marriage of Alexander de Setoun, son of the deceased Sir John de Setoun, Knight, heir of the said Sir Alexander, with Margaret, daughter of the deceased Sir William de Ruthven.' Alexander de Seton seems to have died s.p., soon after his marriage, and may perhaps have been one of the many Scottish gentlemen who fell at the battle of Durham, 17 October 1346."
