SETH Family HistoryDerived either from the Olde English 'seap' and meaning 'the dweller by the pool' or from the Medieval Gaelic 'siteach' and meaning 'the one who dwells at the eyrie'. In the second case the name is spelt as Sheehy, Sheekey, Sheach, Shiach, Seath and Seth and the name holders claim descent from the McDonnels of Scotland although they have been in Ireland since 1400 and were renowned for their fighting qualities. There is also a variant of the Hebrew Seith and introduced by the Crusaders. The first recorded spelling of the family name is shown to be that of William atte Seth.
