In Reply to: Fulke Greville and William Shakespeare by Christopher Fulke-Greville of 318

Hi Christopher,
Can you enlighten me about what is transpiring re two things you have said.

(1) Fulke Greville and William Shakespeare's relationship with each other .
I have long held the view that They had a lot to do with each other.
Without actually locating the material, I have seen something somewhere that both Fulke and William had co-operated in some way on literature, but never seen any proof of this. Sir Philip Sidney (Fulkes cousin)was also apparently involved with W. Shakespeare.

I have also read something that suggests Fulke actually wrote some of the works attributed to William Shakepeare, also without ever finding any proof of this.

William Shakespeare was younger than Fulke and hence I would suggest any proof than can come to light that shows Fulke may have been William's mentor, tutor etc would be very nice to see.

(2) Opening of the Greville crypt in basement of St Mary's church in Warwick....please enlighten me as to what is going on here.
I was at the church recently in July and didnt hear any "gossip" about the crypt being opened, but one never knows!
I tried to get someone to open the vault in June 2007 but got nowhere with the church folk, they said only Greville family persons had keys.
From memory, what I was told in 2007 that some sections of the crypt(namely those of the earlier burials) had actually been sealed up whereas the later burials were still visible inside the crypt.
BUT then again,is Fulke(1554-1628)actually buried under his massive blue monument in the quire or in the family crypt... I show "under the monument in the quire".
Which is correct?
