"3. Alexander, who appears to have been knighted. He was probably the Sir Alexander de Seton who was
sent on a mission to Newcastle-on-Tyne in 1323, and styled by King Robert I. his 'bachelor.' He was killed at Kinghorn in Fife, shortly after Edward Baliol's landing there on 6 August 1332. The designation ' Sir Alexander the father ' never appears after that date."
