The Descendants of Duncan Seton and Elspeth Scot in Loinmarstaig


Some of the older ruins at Loinmarstaig in Glengirnaig

Moulin OPR
4th March 1760. Duncan Setton and Elspeth Scot, both in this parish, being legally contracted, booked and proclaimed, and no objections offered, were married April 3rd 1760.

All of their six children were born at Loinmarstaig in Glengirnaig. When James's baptism was being recorded the registrar wrote his father's name as James Setton, in error, obviously confusing Duncan with James Setton in Loinmarstaig who was married to Jean McLagan. It is quite likely that Duncan and James were brothers.
