Usually one secludes oneself but it happens (ones in a while) that someone else secludes one:

Worshipping proportion, Sir William not only prospered himself but made England prosper, secluded her lunatics, forbade childbirth, penalised despair, made it impossible for the unfit to propagate their views until they, too, shared his sense of proportion - his, if they were men, Lady Bradshaw's if they were women (she embroidered, knitted, spent four nights out of seven at home with her son), so that not only did his colleagues respect him, his subordinates fear him, but the friends and relations of his patients felt for him the keenest gratitude for insisting that these prophetic Christs and Christesses, who prophesied the end of the world, or the advent of God, should drink milk in bed, as Sir William ordered; Sir William with his thirty years' experience of these kinds of cases, and his infallible instinct, this is madness, this sense; in fact, his sense of proportion.

One of the words in the 'clude' group. - close, confine


Latin
Verb
claudō (present infinitive claudere, perfect active clausī, supine clausum); third conjugation

I shut, close, lock
I imprison, confine
I besiege, blockade
I limit, restrict


English:
Include, enclosure
Exclude,
Preclude
Conclude
Occlude (occlusion, weather occluded front)
Recluse, reclusive
Secluded

Claustrophobia
Cloister
Clause


Close (shut) is influenced by it
Quote:
From Middle English closen (“to close, enclose”),
partly continuing (in altered form) earlier Middle English clusen (“to close”) (from Old English clȳsan (“to close, shut”); compare beclose, foreclose, etc.),

and partly derived from Middle English clos (“close, shut up, confined, secret”, adjective),
from Old French clos (“close, confined”, adjective),
from Latin clausus (“shut up”, past participle),
from claudere (“to bar, block, close, enclose, bring an end to, confine”), stronghold

Partially replaced Old English lūcan (“to close, lock, enclose”), (whence English lock).



Disclose is not Latin-French, it is an English formation.
Disclose
Undisclosed
Non-disclosure

mid-15c., "to shut up, enclose, confine," from Latin secludere "shut off, confine," from se- "apart" + -cludere, variant of claudere "to shut" (see close (v.)). Meaning "to remove or guard from public view" is recorded from 1620s. Related: Secluded; secluding.

When you seclude someone, you separate them from other people. A Buddhist monk might seclude himself in a remote place to meditate alone for several weeks.

Most people use the verb seclude to talk about shutting themselves away from society or keeping themselves separate from others. An eccentric family might seclude itself from the neighbors, for example. The root is Latin, secludere, which means "shut off or confine," from se, "apart" and cludere, "to shut." Originally, seclude was used to mean "to enclose or confine," and by the 1620s it also meant "to keep from public view."
