Seaton Family

A Memory of Auldgirth

My father Colin Seaton was born and raised in Auldgirth, he was the youngest of 5 children. He left Scotland when he was 17 and now lives in australia. Does anyone remember the Seaton family at all?

I visited Auldgirth back in 2007 and there wasn't anyone around that remember my fathers family, any information would be great

Laura - I was at school with your dad - we are the same age ie born in 1949. My mum still lives opposite the house in which your father lived.

mybdad was very pleased to hear that your mother is still living in the same house Craig. He said he went to both primary and secondary school with you and remembered catching up with the last time he came to Scotland to visit, which was probably about 35 years ago.
He is still in touch with Stuart McCrae.
I asked dad if there were any school photos taken but he can't remember.
If you had an class photos with my dad in I would really enjoy seeing them.

Hi Laura - My mum's the one who keeps all the old photos. I'll have a rummage around the next time I'm in Auldgirth.
