Here are all the one, two, three, and four letter combinations of letters.It's absolutely useless, but your friendly search engine indexed it!To which Diabolical illusion he is said to have given so much credit, that he did not only estrange himself from her society at his coming home, but furnished his next wife with an excellent opportunity for pressing him to the disinheriting of his former Children." On this flimsy evidence, Edward Seymour's wife Catherine was dumped into a convent and her father expected to pay for it.
One of them was Francis Bryan, by now a Gentleman of the Privy Chamber (he had replaced William Carey). He felt sorry for Jane, still single and stuck at home, and tried to find her a husband. Better still, since he did not like Anne, he decided to help Jane attract the King herself. The King stopped off at Wolf Hall, the Seymour family home, on his summer progress without his wife Anne. Anne was annoyed when the King went back again to Wolf Hall on his summer progress the following year, 1535, although she was able to go with him, as this time he brought Jane Seymour back with him to court.
But although related to Anne Boleyn, he had fallen out with her, and he was also just as closely related to Jane Seymour. Jane and Anne were also second cousins, so Anne (and others) knew the past scandal of her unofficial betrothal to William Dormer.
Edward Seymour had been in France in attendance on Mary Tudor in 1514 and on campaign in the war of 1522 - when he was just the right age to be interested in a saucy camera obscura show set up to entertain the troops. Elizabeth, was married at the age of 13 to Sir Anthony Oughtred, Governor of Jersey, and Dorothy married Sir Clement Smythe (or Smith). Jane, the eldest daughter, was left on the shelf still living with her mum and dad.
It could be possible this had been the inspiration to form an excuse to get shot of his wife when he met someone else. Edward's sister Jane is said by some historians, to have been still single as the scandal of her brother's divorce put off her wedding arrangements to William Dormer, but actually Jane and William had fallen in love and become betrothed, when she was 14 and he was 19, which would have been in about 1522 (according to some calculations - however definite ages and dates are not recorded).
Along with Francis Bryan, she was also giving advice to Jane on encouraging the King's interest in her and sustaining it to become something more permanent than a quick screw.
