About Henry Seaton

"Henry Seaton and a numbuber of his co-workers sought refuge in the wilds of America, locating in the Colony of Virginia in 1690." p. 104

"Henry Seaton settled first in Gloucester county.." p. 105

"For some years Henry Seaton continued to reside upon the banks of the Pyanketank, in Gloucester County, during which period, in 1709, he was married to Elizabeth Todd, daughter of a gentleman of standing in that county, and had issue." p. 105

'...__among whom, in Pentworth Parish, Gloucester county, were mentioned Henry, Richard and Bailey Seaton, and says: "None but men of substance and consideration were made vestrymen, " and the reader will find that the descendants fo these gentlemen have retained their high social position." p. 105

     "Henry Seaton subsequently removed to an estate in King William County, on the Mattapony, which for several generations continued to be the home of his descendants.
     By a deed a century and a half old, in possession of the family "An Indenture Tripartite, made in the first year of the reign of our most gracious Sovereign, Lord and King, George the Second,' between Colonel Taylor, George Seaton, only son and heir of Henry Seaton, and Elizabeth his wife, now the wife of Augustine Moore, Gentleman," we learn that Henry Seaton's widow had remarried.
     Henry and Elizabeth Seaton had been blessed with only one child before the death of the former, and to him had been given the name of George Seaton."  p. 105

"The third son of Sir John Seton 4th of Barnes, but his only son from his second marriage to Lady Margaret Hay, he was mistakenly referred to as a son of Seton of Garleton, which was incorrect. Like all of the Setons he was staunchly loyal to the Stuart Monarchs and was opposed to Prince William of Orange and made himself peculiarly obnoxious to the government by complicity in the Jacobite schemes for his overthrow. After engaging in the failed Jacobite Resistance, he sought refuge and settled in the colony of Virginia in the America's in 1690, with a number of other Scots loyalists."
