  General Notes:

"William de Seton is designed Lord of that Ilk and of Tranent in a charter whereby he granted the lands of
Wester Fausyde to John de Fausyde, his esquire. He seems to have granted certain lands in Longniddrie to John Maitland and John de Paynston by charter confirmed by King Robert II. 18 January 1380-81. He was a distinguished soldier, and like his father he took part in the holy war, it is said before 1383; he seems to have
served with the Scottish force which raided the north of England in that year. He styled himself ' Baron, lord
of Seton' in a petition to the Pope which was granted 27 October 1394, but is designed Knight in a charter of
the lands of Borde granted by him in favour of Patrick Fleming, dated 14 May 1402."
