Sir John Seymour, Wolf Hall, and Sister to the Queen

Dorothy Seymour (c.1516 - 1566) - Genealogy
Dorothy Seymour was the sister of Jane Seymour, who was one of the wives of Henry VIII.

She was born at Wolf Hall in Wiltshire, England. Although this is the same Wolf Hall that was made famous by the series of the same name, it was actually a Seymour family property.

Several hundred years ago, my family line crossed the path of the Seymours and Wolf Hall, via the marriage of my ancestor Samuel Bedlore Dunscomb and his wife Lucie Claiborne.

Dorothy’s father Sir John Seymour “…was knighted in the field by Henry VII for his services against the Cornish rebels at Blackheath on 17 June 1497.[8] He was made Knight banneret in 1513.[4][9] He was present at the sieges of Thérouanne and Tournay in 1513 as well as the two meetings between Henry VIII and Francis I: the Field of the Cloth of Gold in 1520 and again in 1532.[9]” Wikipedia

“Jane Seymour, the eldest surviving daughter [of Sir John], was a maid of honour of Henry’s first wife, Catherine of Aragon, and then later of Anne Boleyn. Henry VIII stayed at Wulfhall with Queen Anne in the summer of 1535 for a few days.[34] In early 1536, Henry declared his love for Jane and began spending increasing amounts of time with her, chaperoned by her brother, Edward. Henry and Jane were officially betrothed the day after Anne Boleyn was arrested and executed on charges of treason, adultery and incest. After Jane became queen on 30 May 1536, her family scaled the social ranks, as was befitting the family of a royal consort.” Wikipedia

But Jane died after the birth of her son, Edward, who would become King when he was 9.

  1. The heart of your writing while sounding agreeable at first, did not sit perfectly with me personally after some time. Someplace within the sentences you actually managed to make me a believer but just for a short while. I still have a problem with your jumps in assumptions and one might do well to fill in those breaks. In the event that you actually can accomplish that, I could definitely be amazed.
