About Jonet de Quincy

Jonet de Quincy, dau and heiress of Robert de Quincy, (note not Roger de Quincy who lived a century later). She brought as her dowry, the lands of St. Gernains and Winton to the Seton family.


Walter de Seton ("Walcher", also known as Dougall, succeeded his father Seier de Lens/ de Seton, a temp Alexander I who d 1124) Walter de Lens, also known as Walter the Fleming as they came from Flanders.


  1. Walter de Seton (Secher or Seier, also known as Dougall), he lived during the reign of David I (1124-1153).



Seier’s eldest son, Walter de Lens, or Walter the Fleming as he is described in Domesday, had his chief English home at Wahull (now called Odell) in Bedfordshire. On the Firth of Forth, as heir there of his father, Seier, he was called Dougall or "the dark stranger", a nickname which was also given to his own son Walter, and duly recorded by the family’s chronicler, Sir Richard Maitland of Lethington, in 1554.

The son of the 1st Seier de Seton, of de Lens, is known as Dougall de Setoun and his Christian name was Walter, however he was usually described by a familiar appellation in the language of the Scots people around him. He was baron of the town and lands of Setoun and married Janet, brother of Robert de Quincy (and not of Roger, who lived a century later) and had a son also called Seier (2nd) who is often confused with his grandfather.

His wife’s father, Saher de Quincy had married Maud de St. Liz, daughter of Simon de St. Liz, Earl of Huntington and Northhampton and Maud, or Matilda, the elder of the two daughters of Waltheof, Earl of Northumberland and Judith de Lens, the niece to King William I of England.
