 for Seir
From Easton's 1897 Bible Dictionary :

  Seir
     rough; hairy. (1.) A Horite; one of the "dukes" of Edom (Gen.
     36:20-30).
     
       (2.) The name of a mountainous region occupied by the
     Edomites, extending along the eastern side of the Arabah from
     the south-eastern extremity of the Dead Sea to near the Akabah,
     or the eastern branch of the Red Sea. It was originally occupied
     by the Horites (Gen. 14:6), who were afterwards driven out by
     the Edomites (Gen. 32:3; 33:14, 16). It was allotted to the
     descendants of Esau (Deut. 2:4, 22; Josh. 24:4; 2 Chr. 20:10;
     Isa. 21:11; Exek. 25:8).
     
       (3.) A mountain range (not the Edomite range, Gen. 32:3) lying
     between the Wady Aly and the Wady Ghurab (Josh. 15:10).
