Susanna and John Hall

Posted on Updated on

Susanna Shakespeare

Shakespeare’s eldest daughter, Susanna, married  John Hall on 5 June 1607.

After the death of her grandfather, John Shakespeare in 1635, Susanna, John, their daughter Elizabeth, and Anne Shakespeare lived in New Place together. Upon his demise, William Shakespeare left Susanna his papers, and so it is assumed that she had some involvement with the compilation of the First Folio.

Susanna’s epitaph gives us some indication about her wit, wisdom and vivacity. Click here to listen to the epitaph.
