Seaton Family HistoryThis interesting name recorded as Seaton and Seton and occasionally Sayton, is of locational origin. The Seatons or Seton's of Scotland descend from a place near Longriddry which is named after a Norman family who came over with William the Conqueror, but who were granted lands in Scotland. These were the "de Sey", and to their name was added the Olde English 'tun', to give 'the place of the (de) Sey'. The English Setons or Seatons derive their name from one of several places in Yorkshire, Devon, Durham, Cumberland or Northumberland, all on the coast .
