Jane was born around 1508 or 1509, the daughter of Sir John Seymour of Wiltshire and Margery Wentworth. Her place of birth is unknown but is presumed to have been Wolf (or Wulf) Hall, Wiltshire.
She was a Lady-in-Waiting to Catherine of Aragon and Anne Boleyn.
She married Henry VIII on 30 May 1536, probably at the Palace of York Place, Westminster (formerly the London Palace of the Archbishops of York).
At the beginning of the insurrection referred to as the Pilgrimage of Grace it was recorded that "the Queen threw herself on her knees before the King and begged him to restore the abbeys, but he told her, prudently enough, to get up, and he had often told her not to meddle with his affairs, referring to the late Queen, which was enough to frighten a woman who is not very secure."
Jane's father died in December 1536 and Jane and her six brothers and three sisters are recorded on a memorial to her father at Great Bedwyn, Wiltshire.
Jane gave birth to a son, Edward (the future Edward VI), on 12 Oct 1537 at Hampton Court Palace.
She died "about midnight" on 24 Oct 1537 at Hampton Court Palace and was buried on 12 Nov 1537 in a vault in the choir of St. George's Chapel, Windsor. Henry was later buried at her side.
