Seymour has been married four times, and has four children:

  • 1971-1973: Michael Attenborough
  • 1977-1978: Geoffrey Planer
  • 1981-1992: David Flynn (with whom she had two children, Katherine, born 1981; and Sean, born 1986. Her daughters appeared with her as "Katie Flynn" and "Jenni Flynn" in the infomercial for cosmetics line "Natural Advantage by Jane Seymour.")
  • 1993 to present: James Keach (with whom she had twins Johnny and Kris, born 1995, named after family friends Johnny Cash and Christopher Reeve)

In 1984, Seymour bought with then-husband David Flynn the Grade One listed St Catherine's Court for £350,000, located in the village of St Catherine, near Bath, Somerset. After spending £3 million on refurbishments, she spent her summers at the house and her winters in Malibu. After her divorce from Flynn and marriage to Keach, she spent more time in America, and made little use of the house, so she began to rent it out. In 1994, during that season's filming for Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman, she rented it to English rock group Radiohead, who recorded their album OK Computer at the house. In May 2007, she was granted a 24-hour alcohol and entertainment licence under new UK regulations. However, this caused much disturbance with neighbours, who claimed the access lane was too thin and the noise too excessive.

Jane Seymour fulfilled her most important duty as queen, but she was never crowned and died just twelve days after the long and arduous birth.
Her father was Sir John Seymour of Wolf Hall in Wiltshire; he served in the Tournai campaign of 1513 and accompanied Henry VIII to the Field of the Cloth of Gold in 1520.
The Seymour rise to prominence at Henry's court mirrored that of the Boleyns; it was the path sought by all English families with a minor pedigree or clever son.
Jane Seymour - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (1505 words)
