  Before the Lords were created, the Seton family maintained a tradition of Knights, for thirteen generations, until the mid-14th century, and passed this training through hereditary means to every son of the House.  The first created Lord in Scotland was Sir William Seton, son of the heiress Margaret Seton and Alan de Winton, and grandson of Sir Alexander Seton, of Berwick Castle fame.  The Lord's Seton were the premier barons of Scotland and heirs to the Earldom of Winchester and later the Earldom of Buchan, and becoming Earls of Huntly, Winton, Dunfermline, Eglinton and Chancellor's of Scotland.
