SEATON SLUICE is a village in Northumberland. It lies on the coast at the mouth of the Seaton Burn, between Whitley Bay and Blyth. Part of it was was called Hartley Pans because of the salt-pans. In 1100 the land was owned by Hubert de Laval, nephew by marriage to William the Conqueror. The de Lavals (or Delavals) settled inland from Hartley Pans and their residence was Seaton Delaval - the name 'Seaton' meaning a settlement (ton) by the sea.
