English Setters were originally bred as bird hunters in England 400-500 years ago. The dogs were trained to point in a more crouched position, or “set”, when they spotted a bird. Before firearms were the regular, hunters would cast a large net over the area to catch the bird. This crouching method helped the dog avoid getting tangled in the net. Any breed that “set” was referred to as a “setter”.
