  The following comes from Visitation (Oxfordshire, 1566+1574+1634, Seymour of Burton).
  ((1)) Simon Seymour of Burton (eldest soni)

  m. John Bulkley of Bampton
  ((2)) John Seymer of Hanford, Dorset (a 1482)
This connection is speculative. Collins (1741, vol I, Seymour, Duke of Somerset) reports that the Seymours (Seymers) of Hanford were possibly descended from the above-mentioned Humphrey of Evenswinden and the dates indicate that there were probably no intervening generations between this John and that Humphrey. However, those are the only bases for making the connection as shown.
