He later re-wrote his Will in 1979, leaving £10,000 in memory of his brother William and himself, to be used to offer financial assistance to Downing students.

Furthermore he left his residuary estate upon his wife’s death to the College. He named it the Seton Cavendish Bequest and, as stated in his Will, it will be “in memory of my parents and their four children. The income to be used to further the educational standards of the College by grants for research study.” In 2011, almost 70 years after his original Will, the generosity of John Archibald Seton and his determination over many years to remember Downing in his Will have resulted in a bequest worth just over £1.5 million. It has made an invaluable and lasting impact on the future of the College as, no doubt, Mr Seton had hoped it would.

After a period of leave and involvement in the Ulster Plantatin, in 1645 he had returned and had been advanced to the rank of a Colonel in the Norwegian army and navy. Later that year he took over eight ships of the Danish navy to fight Sweden, and there was promoted to the rank of Admiral: the last appointment of a British-Scot in Christian IV's service.  With these ships, he took part in the "Norwegian response", attacking Gothenburg (Göteborg) from the sea.  His assault took place in August, just before the Treaty of Brömsebro ended the Danish-Swedish war in favour of Sweden, on 13/23 August 1645.  The last record of him is on 19 April 1649, in the Norwegian army, where he was supposedly killed.

He is said to have married the daughter of a Swedish naval officer who blew up his ship in an action at Danzig to escape capture.
