Edward Seymour, was still married to his first wife until sometime between 1529 and 1532, when he and Dame Katherine, his wife petitioned for the examination of aged witnesses, [the said Sir John Rogers, and Thomas Scherlye and John Rowdon], to deeds relating to the manors of Harrynge and Sellinge by Monks Horton, to land there and in Lympne, Estrynghanger [Ostenhanger in Stanford], Horton, Burmarsh, West Hythe, Dymchurch and Aldington, and to the manor of Steeple, late of the said Dorothy. Subpoena ad testificandum. Kent, Essex.
"in October 1551 Seymour was sent to the Tower on an exaggerated charge of treason. Instead, he was executed for felony (that of seeking a change of government) in January 1552 after scheming to overthrow Dudley's regime. Edward noted his uncle's death in his Chronicle: "the duke of Somerset had his head cut off upon Tower Hill between eight and nine o'clock in the morning". Edward Seymour, Duke of Somerset was interred at St. Peter ad Vincula, Tower of London." Wikipedia
