Tour guide faces potential rival in bid to take on the role of Earl of Dunfermline.
The earldom of Dunfermline ended in 1694 when the fourth earl, James Seton, who had forfeited the title in 1690, died with no heirs.
Like his father before him, Seton was a Jacobite and joined the uprising led by Viscount Dundee in 1689.
He was Dundee’s cavalry commander for most of the rising and led a troop of horses at the Battle of Killiecrankie.
After Dundee’s death at the battle, he remained a senior figure with the Jacobites until mid-1690 when he was outlawed by the British Government and had to forfeit his title and his estates.
His involvement in the rising, as an earl and a member of the Scottish Privy Council, helped disprove some claims that Dundee was the only noble supporter of the rebellion.
