   User ID: X733.

  General Notes:

Katharine is not listed as a legitimate daughter of William or Alexander Seton, but The Records of Aboyne by Charles Gordon Huntly, (Aberdeen, 1894) state that William Forbes of Kildrummie and Towie married Katherine, daughter of Seton of Meldrum. Her married life dates suggest she may have been William's rather than Alexander's daughter, but feasibly she could have been the daughter of any of the males of the family if the date was appropriate, and may possibly have been born outside marriage. She has been place in this second later marriage of William Seton until further information clarifies the situation. 2 3

Katherine married William FORBES 'of Little Kildrimmie', Laird of Towie, son of Duncan FORBES of Drumallachie and Elizabeth 'Bessie' CRICHTON 'of Conland'.1 (William FORBES 'of Little Kildrimmie', Laird of Towie was born about 1460.)

  Marriage Notes:

Forbes of Towie, Mr. John Forbes of Barns, Wm. Forbes of Ardmurdo, with diverss bairns, goten on Elizabeth, out of marriage, but therafter married her on his death-bed, and made the fsd. bairns lawfull..."
