This Clan was first found in East Lothian where they were granted lands by Earl David, King of Scotland and were recorded as a family of great antiquity seated on the lands of Saytown in that shire. They were originally from Say near Exmes in Normandy. The name probably once meant 'sea town.'

Satam Early Origins



The surname Satam was first found in East Lothian, where they were granted lands by Earl David, King of Scotland. The township of Seaton in the East Risding of Yorkshire was home to another branch of the family. "This place, in Domesday Book called Setton, at an early period gave name to a resident family; and in the thirteenth century, the abbey of Meaux received a grant of some property here." [1]CITATION[CLOSE]
Lewis, Samuel, A Topographical Dictionary of England. Institute of Historical Research, 1848, Print.
North Seaton has similarly the same lineage. "This place appears to have been at an early period in the possession of the Seaton family, and in the thirteenth century part was owned by the priory of Tynemouth and the hospital of St. John of Jerusalem." [1]CITATION[CLOSE]
Lewis, Samuel, A Topographical Dictionary of England. Institute of Historical Research, 1848, Print.
