Jane's Tutor

Is there any proof that John Aylmer fell in love with Jane?Also,when did he first arrive?Mary Luke claims in "The Nine Days Queen" that he came when she was very young,but the part on Jane in the www.tudorhistory.org claims her to be 12.

I have been unable to find any proof in research for my book which hinges on this. John Aylmer started as Tutor at Bradgate when Jane was Twelve, she having returned from the guardianship of Thomas Seymour who was executed. But he remembered her as a young three year old when he worked at Bradgate as manservant.
