Seaton Hall is a former Norman Hunting Lodge built around 1130 for the de Brus family. In 1139 it became the seat of the de Seaton family until 1306. Sir Christopher de Seaton married Lady Christian de Brus, sister of Robert the Bruce.

Ownership then passed to the family of de Mauley and by descent to Sir John Bigod who rebuilt the site in 1483. His son Sir Francis Bigod was born here in 1507, and led Bigod's rebellion against Henry the 8th and was a leader of the Pilgrimage of Grace. He was beheaded in 1537. His brother Ralph lived at Seaton until 1547.
