  General Notes:

Edward Seymour, styled Baron Beauchamp of Hache, was the son of Edward Seymour, 2nd Earl of Hertford and Lady Catherine Grey, younger sister of Lady Jane Grey.

Edward Seymour was born in the Tower of London, where his mother had been imprisoned for secretly marrying his father, against the wishes of Queen Elizabeth I of England. His mother was already pregnant when she entered the Tower, and was given poor living conditions, apparently in the hope that she would either miscarry or die. For many years, her children were regarded as illegitimate because no proof could be produced of his parents' legal marriage.

Edward married Honora Rogers some time before mid-1582, and they had four children:

* Lord Edward Beauchamp Seymour (1586-1618), married Anne Sackville and died without issue.
* William Seymour (1588-1660), eventually regained the dukedom of Somerset, which Edward's grandfather had held.
* Francis Seymour (c. 1590-1664), later enobled as Baron Seymour of Trowbridge.
* Honora Seymour (bef. 1594-1620), married Sir Ferdinando Sutton.

Both Lord Beauchamp and his eldest son, Edward, predeceased his father, the Earl of Hertford (d. 1621), and his second son, William, succeeded his grandfather in the earldom.

Edward married Honora Rogers about 1582. (Honora Rogers was born about 1565.)
