Baronet Seth Sothel

Seth Sothel (also spelled Sothell and Southwell) purchased Edward Hyde, Earl of Clarendon's interest in the Proprietorship after Hyde died in 1674, so he was now one of the Lords Proprietors. He was appointed the Governorship of both Albemarle County (North Carolina) and later declared himself Governor of Charles Town (South Carolina) - from both he was expelled.

However, as a new Lords Proprietor, he received the title of Baronet and the accompanying lands that went with that title.
