Humphrey Seymour, son of Sir John Seyour and Isabel Williams (m 1424), was their third son. He married Elizabeth Winslow, who died before 1515 (widow of John Tenumber, living 1458). Elizabeth was the daughter and co-heiress of Thomas Winslow (or Wynslowe), Esq., by Agnes, daughter of Sir John Throckmorton.
Humphrey Seymour, Gent., was living in 1509.
Birth: Given without sources by family trees as 1453/1454, Even Swindon, Wiltshire, England, it is more likely he was born about 20 years earlier (c1434), based on his parents' marriage in 1424 and his wife's birth in 1438 (apparently based on her first marriage in 1458, but also on her father's birth, given as 1400 in History of Parliament, with a note on Thomas Winslow's profile that his birth "is likely anywhere from 1400 to 1412").
Father: History of Parliament shows Humphrey to be son of Sir John Seymour (1402-1464), and named as son in his 1464 will.
A footnote in a BHO article questions that Sir John Seymour (1402-1464) was son Roger (as given in History of Parliament) and notes Humprhey's father as John (d 1463):
