Biography

Catherine was born about 1549 England. She was the daughter of Edward Seymour and Anne Stanhope.
She died unmarried and without children.

Name

Name: Catherine Seymour

Birth

Birth: About 1549 of Somersetshire, England
Date is a rough estimate based on the presumed birth order of children. She was apparently the second youngest daughter with the youngest daughter, Elizabeth, known to have been born about 1550 ("in her second year" in Nov. 1552).[1]

Death

Died: Before 1586
Likely died well before this date. She is last known living in 1552.
She died unmarried before her mother.[2][1]
She was not named in her mother's will in 1586.[3]

Notes

  • Following the execution of her father, she became a ward of king. She was placed in the custody of her aunt, Elizabeth (Seymour) Cromwell.[1]
  • This profile previously had Katherine married to James Farwell of South Raynham, Norfolk. This is frankly a near impossible connection designed to give Henry Farwell a false royal connection. No evidence has been found to support the assertion. According to the epitaph on the tomb of her mother, she died unmarried.[4]
