  • Notes 
    • "SIR JOHN DE SETON, or SEYTON, was the eldest son of Sir John Seyton of Draughton in Northamptonshire, by Bridget daughter of Lord Basset of Sapcote, and was born about the year 1346. In September 1383 he was abroad in the King's service, and in October 1394 was in the retinue of John of Gant in Acquitaine. He made a pilgrimage to Jerusalem in 1396, and died in the Holy City; but his body was brought to England and deposited on the south side of the chancel of Maidwell Church, where a monument, consisting of his effigy in armour, with the legs across, his head supported by a horse's leg, and his shield charged with his arms, Gules, a bend Argent between six martlets Or, still remains."
