    • Life Sketch
         
      George Seton, 3rd Lord Seton, of Seton, East Lothian, (c. 1415 '96 1478) was a Lord of Parliament, Lord Auditor, and a Scottish ambassador.

      George Seton III, 5th Lord Seton was a Scottish nobleman. He is sometimes referred to as the 3rd Lord Seton because he was the 3rd Lord Seton with the name of George.

      He carried out his role at Seton Palace, the family seat in East Lothian. He also made significant contributions to the Seton Collegiate Church, which had been established by his ancestors.

      George Seton was with King James IV of Scotland, on the expedition into England in 1513. This campaign ended at the disastrous Battle of Flodden Field, where on Sep. 9, 1513, King James and Seton were among the thousands of Scots who were killed. Lord Seton's body was returned to Scotland and interred at Seton Church beside that of his father.

      George Seton had married Lady Janet Hepburn, daughter of Patrick Hepburn, 1st Earl of Bothwell in 1507. They had one surviving son, who later succeeded as 6th Lord Seton.
