The first Seton's of the United states of America,
of the Scottish House of Seton, originated from the central region of Scotland.
descend from John Seton, head of the Parbroath family line
who went from London, England to America aboard the ship, the
Globe, in 1635. John founded the Seton family in New York,
from whence sprang the tie to Elizabeth Ann Bayley who married
William Seton, representative of Parbroath. Elizabeth Ann Seton
became the 1st American Catholic Saint. However, many other
Seton families emigrated to America over the centuries, and
Scottish Seton/Seaton/Seeton's can be found in the United States
from almost every branch.
The senior representative of line is
at present unknown.
