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.

  1. Thomas says:

    The Seymour family still holds the title of Dukes of Somerset, with their family seat near Glastonbury, England. Their renaissance-style mansion was constructed largely from the stones taken from Glastonbury Abbey when it was dissolbed and dismantled.
