  • Born: About 1329
  • Marriage (1): DE WYNTOUN, Alan by 1347 1

Margaret married Alan DE WYNTOUN by 1347.1 (Alan DE WYNTOUN was born about 1310 and died after 1347 in Holy Land 1.)

  Marriage Notes:

"Margaret, Lady of Seton, presumably sister (or possibly first cousin) of Alexander de Seton, the husband of Margaret de Ruthven, and granddaughter of the
ex-Governor of Berwick, was married, apparently in or after 1347, to Alan de Wyntoun, who may perhaps have been a distant kinsman of her own. Andrew de Wyntoun tells of the abduction in that year of the young lady of Seton by Alan de Wyntoun (whom some have supposed his own relative), and gives a circumstantial account of what followed. He relates that 'for that maryage fell gret stryffe'; that 'Wyntoun's war,' as it was called, was such that

'in Lowthyane as men sayde
Ma than a hundyr plwys war layde';

and adds that William of Murray in Edinburgh Castle heartily supported and aided the aggressor."
