About Charles Seton

Charles Seton, 2nd Earl of Dunfermline (November, 1615-May 11, 1672) was the son of Alexander Seton, 1st Earl of Dunfermline (1555-1622). Charles was a Royalist during the Civil War, and was forced to flee the country when Charles I was executed in 1649, only to return with Charles II the next year.

He was married to Mary Douglas, daughter of William Douglas, 7th Earl of Morton. At his death in 1672, his two sons, Alexander Seton, 3rd Earl of Dunfermline (1642-1677) and James Seton, 4th Earl of Dunfermline (d. 1694) succeeded him in turn. Both died without issue, and the title became extinct when James Seton was outlawed in 1690.
