Anne, John and Mary Shakespeare’s sixth child, was baptized on September 28, 1572, according to the Holy Trinity Church parish register. Next to the entry, an “X” added by a later hand highlights its significance. She was baptized two-and-a-half years after Joan, the same interval between her baptism and her elder brother Gilbert’s in October 1566.

Anne is otherwise undocumented except for her burial eight and a half years later, on April 4, 1579.
