My apologies if this has already been discussed; I searched it in the forum to no avail. But...
Does anyone have any new light to shed on Mary Seymour, daughter of Katherine Parr and the Admiral Thomas Seymour? All I've come across about her, is that she was named in honor of Mary I. After her parents' deaths, she was given into the care of Lady Catherine Willoughby...the Duchess of Suffolk. Catherine wrote to William Cecil, complaining of the child's costs. (Clothing and such)
There's no record of Mary Seymour after that. But it seems odd that we don't even have a record of death...? After all, her guardian was a prestigous lady. She was the step-daughter (or however that works) of Henry VIII. Queen Jane was her aunt. Edward, the reigning king, was her cousin. Lady Jane Grey seemed as if she would have been interested in the child. Or maybe people were still "flustered" by Katherine and Thomas's marriage. Maybe they wouldn't have cared about their child.
