fordinfbridge James Alexander Seton June was the last British person to be killed in a duel on English soil. He was of Scottish descent, being a descendant of the Earls of Dunfermline. Thanks to inherited money, he was a wealthy man with no need to work for a living. Seton served briefly as a cavalry officer. Between March and March he was attached to the 3rd11th and 12th Light Dragoons.
His rank was never higher than that of cornetand his short military career ended around six years before the duel. S this he is styled "Captain Seton" in many histories of the event. Henry Hawkey heard rumours of this and forbade his wife to see Seton. There, James danced with Isabella. Early the next morning, Hawkey was visited in his lodgings by a naval officer, Lieutenant Rowles. Acting as Seton's second, Fkrdingbridge issued Hawkey with a formal challenge to a duel. Hawkey later visited a gunsmith's shop with a shooting gallery where he briefly practiced shooting.
The duel took place that evening on the beach at Browndown, near Gosport.
After the seconds fordinggbridge measured out fifteen paces, the duellists took their pistols and fired. Seton's shot missed; Hawkey's pistol was half-cocked and failed to fire. By the rules of duelling, the affair could have honourably ended then. However, Hawkey insisted on a second exchange of shots.

This time Seton was struck down by a bullet which entered his lower abdomen. The wounded man was carried onto a yacht that was nearby and taken the short distance to Portsmouth by sea. The surgery appeared to go well, but s of an infection soon became apparent and Seton quickly began to go downhill. He died on 2 June Seton was buried in his family's vault at St Mary's Church, Fordingbridge on 10 June, after his body was released by the coroner.
His funeral was a ificant local event, nearly all the shops in the town were closed and many of the inhabitants followed the funeral procession from Southsea to Fordingbridge. An inquest began on 4 June at the Portsmouth Guildhall. The inquest jury returned a verdict wilful murder against Henry Hawkey and Charles Lawes Pym and a warrant was issued for the arrest of both men. Around nine months after the duel, in MarchLieutenant Pym was charged as an accessory for murder at Winchester assizes, but was acquitted.
His involvement in the duel had little apparent effect on his military career, which was long and successful. He eventually reached the rank of general. Henry Hawkey was tried for murder on 13 June at the summer session of Winchester assizes. Defended by Alexander Cockburn QChe was found not guilty after Cockburn delivered a two-hour speech to the jury, in which he claimed Hawkey had been deeply provoked by Seton's conduct to his wife, and that Seton's death was largely caused by the medical treatment he had received.
However, he was convicted only of manslaughter and sentenced to a few months in prison. James Alexander Seton. FordingbridgeHampshire.
