William Shakespeare, 11th cousin 9x removed

William Shakespear is my 11th cousin 9x removed. The ancestor who connects us together is Maud Marshall (1192 – 1248), my 19th great grandmother.

William Shakespeare was baptize on 26 April 1564 and died on 23 April 1616. He had been an English poet, playwright and actor, widely seen as the best writer when looking at the English language and also the world’s greatest dramatist. He could be also known as England’s national poet and the “Bard of Avon”. His extant works, including collaborations, consist of approximately 39 plays, 154 sonnets, two long narrative poems, and a few other verses, some of uncertain authorship. His plays have been translated into every major living language and therefore are performed more frequently than those of any other playwright.
