This park is named in honor of Saint Elizabeth Ann Seton (1774-1821), known to her friends and followers as Mother Seton. Born on Staten Island on August 28, 1774, Seton was the daughter of the prominent physician Richard Bayley. Seton spent her summers at Cragdon, her grandparents’ estate, in Edenwald, Maryland, which has since been named Seton Falls in her honor. In 1794, she married William Magee Seton, a successful Manhattan merchant. Her involvement with social work inspired her to found the Society for the Relief of Poor Widows and Children in 1797.
