Shakespeare Family Genealogy Forum
No, I am not claiming descendancy, but that we shared a common ancestor, Joan Belknapp.
Actually, Shakespere may well have had two grandsons who survived--the sons of his daughter Judith, who were declared dead after seven years disappearance to protect the family inheritance by the other daughter Susanna. They went to the new world with their father, Tom Quiney, after his business (The Cage) was taken from him. I think your
perception that the Webbs are in the family tree is correct, but not the grandmother of Shakespeare through his mother. If you check carefully, you will see that that Webb was a stepmother. The others may well be valid, however. Keep up the search. Also, Shakespeare's death was not hidden because of clandestine circumstances on his part, but because he was murdered. Actually, poisoned by Hamnet Sadler--a so-called friend. More later.
