It was at Wolf Hall that Henry VIII stayed in September 1535 and started courting Jane Seymour. It is possible that the newly married royal couple held a celebration party in the barn belonging to the estate. When the barn burned down in the middle of 1920's it still had the hooks on which tapestries used for the celebration hung. After the executions of Thomas and Edward Seymour, the family's fortunes fell as drastic as they had risen - there was no longer a point in trying to improve the family seat of a family that no longer possessed any power.
