Other Genealogical References to the Poet

The Stratford Parish Registers, as would be expected, contain a number of references to the Poet's family - in fact, apart from the following;

all other references to Shakespeares are members of the Poet's family.

Of the exceptions noted above:

This latter is interesting because supposedly Williams family were from Snitterfield, and his 'supposed' uncle Henry had a connection with Hampton Lucy, and of course, his Thomas Shakespeare had a son, John, baptised at Snitterfield in 1586.

An analysis of the arguments for John the 'Shoemaker' being a brother of the Poet can be seen here.

Further contributions to this section of the site are invited - something might provide the vital clue to proving or disproving the theories regarding unrecorded siblings of the Poet!
