 John Seymour (Tudor) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
A proposed marriage between Jane Seymour and William Dormer was rejected by the Dormers partially due to the scandal and because of the family's less-than-noble pedigree: the Seymour family was of the gentry.
John's other daughter, Elizabeth Seymour, was married to Gregory Cromwell, son of Henry's new chief minister, Thomas Cromwell.
John died on December 21, 1536, but his royal daughter did not attend the funeral, nor did she (or any of the rest of his children) seem to have been greatly affected by his death.

Her father was Sir John Seymour of Wolf Hall in Wiltshire; he served in the Tournai campaign of 1513 and accompanied Henry VIII to the Field of the Cloth of Gold in 1520.
Sir John was able to secure appointments at court for his family; of his eight children, three would come to historical prominence - the eldest son Edward as duke of Somerset and Lord Protector, another son Thomas as Lord Admiral and husband of Henry VIII's last queen, and his daughter Jane as queen of England.
