Seymour was the son of Henry Augustus Seymour, who was himself the illegitimate son of Francis Seymour-Conway, 2nd Marquess of Hertford. Upon the latter's death in 1822, Seymour's father was forced to surrender his civil service position and property, and leave Ireland for Belgium. In 1842, Prince Albert (Prince Albert of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha) helped secure a position for Seymour in the colonial service. For the next twenty years, he served in various positions in a series of colonies mired in political and economic difficulties: Van Diemen's Land, Antigua, Nevis, British Honduras, and the Bay Islands (Bay Islands Department). Colonial period 1627–1816 The first regional grouping came in the form of the Carlisle proprietorship of 1627 under which Barbados and the Leewards were grouped together. In practice this arrangement was difficult to administer, and Thomas Warner (Sir Thomas Warner (explorer)) governed the Leeward Islands only. In 1660 Lord Willoughby, as Governor of Barbados, also governed all of the Eastern Caribbean, then under English rule. This scheme met with approval from the Leewards as they required the aid of Barbados at the time during the Second Anglo-Dutch War. Despite this need from Barbados, the planters on the Leewards and in Barbados were rivals for the greatest share of the sugar trade with England and so after the war, England gave in to the demands of the Leewards for separate government, and in 1671 a Governor-in-chief was put in charge of St. Kitts, Nevis, Anguilla, Montserrat, Antigua and Barbuda.
