Shakespeare’s Schoolroom & Guildhall welcomes Professor Glyn Parry

Leading historian shines a light on untold stories of Shakespeare’s father

The public event will be held on Monday 26 November in the very setting where many of these stories took place, with Professor Parry, Professor of Early Modern History at the University of Roehampton, discussing the contents of manuscripts he recently discovered in the National Archives. This is an ongoing project, and to date Professor Parry has discovered 23 documents dating back to the 16th century.

It has long been known that John Shakespeare was accused of illegal money lending and wool dealing by professional informers. Until now it has been assumed that he settled those cases out of court by about 1573, when William was less than ten years old. The newly-discovered manuscripts reveal that some of the cases in fact continued until 1583, when William Shakespeare was nineteen years old. The cases brought by informers eventually resulted in John Shakespeare owing large fines to the Queen, which damaged his business career and forced his retirement from Stratford town council. 

Tickets for the talk on the 26th November cost £5 and can be booked in advance at: or by calling 01789 203175

Shakespeare’s Schoolroom & Guildhall is open daily from 11am to 5pm, with last admissions at 4:30pm. For further information visit
