and had served in India, South Africa and Egypt.
He apprenticed at sea at age 12
He had visited every country in the world,
and could speak 7 languages.
b- Scotland

or was it after Lord Seaton, of Beechwood Devon England?

More I read about Lord Seaton, more I think it was named after him.
Yonge St, in toronto was named after the Yonge shown.
Seaton Lake and Seaton Creek in the south of BC
probably named after them as well.

I am an Amateur Historian, and Genealogist.
I use every source I can find, old newspapers, census, archives, etc.
I do a quick search for the names on these pages.
Therefore I do NOT profess to have 100% accurate information.
Use my info as a clue to do your own research.
I am not related to these folks, nor do I have hidden info.
I encourage everyone to visit their local Museum,
or buy a local history book for more info.
I attempt to connect people with their ancestor in these places.
If it works on just one person, per page, it is worth the time it takes me.
I do not charge for access to my pages,
I do not have any Ads on my pages.
Please "Link" to my page from Facebook, Blogs, etc.
Please do Not copy the pictures, or text on any page.
Please do Not ask to use pictures etc. on Facebook.
A "Link" to my pages, does the same thing.
Just copy the hyper link, URL, shown in your browser above,
and paste that into facebook etc.,
or copy the links I have on the left side.
That is the honest and proper way to do it!
