In an account of the Seton family compiled by Alexander Nisbet the well known writer on Heraldrv a fifth Sir Alexander Seton is set down and it is stated that he married Jean daughter to Sir Thomas Halyburton of Dirleton but he may have been only a collateral of certain but undetermined degree of kinship Nisbet saw the Seton and Halyburton arms impaled as baron and femme on "an old genealogical tree" in the possession of the Earl of Winton at Seton House
