Margery was placed in the household of her aunt, Elizabeth Tilney, the Countess of Surrey, where Margaret me the poet John Skelton, and became his muse. John described Margery as a great beauty, and dedicated poems as he praised her demeanor. In his poem, "Garland of Laurel," he portrays Margery as a shy and kind girl, and compares her to primrose and columbine.

On the day of her marriage to John Seymour, her father married a second time to Lady Elizabeth Scrope, the daughter of Sir John Neville, widow of Lord Thomas Scrope.

After her husband's death, Margery did not remarry, but chose to devote herself to her children and running Wolfhall house, and raised her daughter Jane, the future Queen of England, in informal but highly traditional settings.
