Research Notes

Elizabeth Chaddock was not the mother of Florentius Seymour. This source is probably confusing William Seymour, Sr. and William Seymour, Jr. It was William, Jr. who married Elizabeth Chaddock. William Seymour, Jr., died before Feb. 8, 1640. Elizabeth Chaddock's father, Captain Thomas Chaddock, names her in his will of this date as Elizabeth Waylett, showing that she had remarried. In his will, John Seymour, son of William Seymour, Jr. and Elizabeth Chaddock, mentions his "loving uncle, Florentius Seymour."

William Seymour, Sr. was alive in May, 1653: There is a reference to him is May 3 and 4, 1653, as Councillor and Commander of Southampton Fort. LeFroy Volume 2 . He probably died Dec. 1653.
