"My family clan name is Seid (also written as Sit, Xue and Hsueh). I have been told that many hundreds of years ago, the Seto's were a part of the Seid family clan. Because of a decree of the king to kill all Seid members due an unfortunate accident that resulted in the death of the king's son which was blamed on a Seid member, part of the Seid family clan fled and changed their surname to Seto to avoid capture and sure death at the hands of the king's army. My Seid ancestral village is Cheong Sah located in Sun Wui (another Sze Yup county). In my village is a shrine erected to commemorate the Seid and Seto bloodline linkage and brotherhood."- Raymond 03/28/06
I am another Raymond and that is exactly what my dad said to me a long time ago. I guess it is true then.
