Hi claire! I had a question not really pertaining to anne, but the tudor dynasty. My question is : Is it a safe assumption to think the seymour faction was snuffed out by henry and mary? Thomas, edward, jane ect?

I don't think it is accurate to say that the Seymour faction were snuffed out by Henry and Mary. Jane died after childbirth (probably from puerperal fever), Thomas Seymour was executed during his brother's Protectorship and Edward Seymour was executed during John Dudley's regime, so nothing to do with Henry VIII or Mary I.
Thomas Seymour's only child, a daughter Mary, died in early childhood but Edward's son Edward Seymour, 1st Baron Beauchamp of Hache and the Earl of Hertford, married Lady Jane Grey's sister, Catherine, and had two sons by her, so the Seymours were not wiped out.
