  Marriage Notes:

"Sir Alexander Seton, 2nd of Touch (d Flodden 09.09.1513) m. Elizabeth Home (a 'natural' (see Note below) dau of Alexander, Lord Home)"

from thesetonfamily.com website

Note:

There has been some serious confusion in the past about the marriages and children of Sir Alexander Home, so this may account for Elizabeth being referred to above as a 'natural' daughter', for she was not named as a legitimate daughter in any volume of
The Scots Peerage. Volume nine of this series merely states that

"
According to the genealogy of 1664, there were eight daughters in all."

A recent Wikipedia article does name Elizabeth along with Thomas, Nicholas and David Home as a child of the second marriage of Sir Alexander Home.

She is noted by clanmacfarlanegenealogy (relying on Stirnet Genealogy, Peter Barns-Graham, Seton02) as the daughter of Sir Alexander's first wife, Mariota Lauder, but this is not likely. The dates suggest otherwise: Mariota Lauder, the first wife, began having children in the 1420s and Sir Alexander Seton of Touch's wife, Elizabeth Home, was probably born in the 1460s.
