Question from Annette - Edward Seymour and Catherine Fillol's chidren

Question about edward seymours 1st marriage and children.

Research for my novel, his marriage to catherine fillol was annulled and she was sent to live in a convent, their subsequent children two boys named John and Edward were declared bastards..what happened after their mother was sent away..where did they live, who took care of them, surely not either Seymour or fillol families as it was a scandal at the time.

Can anyone tell me what happened to these boys.

The Wikipedia article gives some sources and indicates that the boys were passed over for the inheritance of Seymour's titles but remained legally considered legitimate
