I haven't trusted a word in Sonnet 20 since I realized it had 14
feminine endings.

It reeks of elaborate in-joke. Southhampton, my Aunt Fanny. There isn't
a shred of evidence to support that snob's fantasy. How about a young
man of the company who specialized in women's parts?

Someone named Edmund, which is the name being punned in Sonnet 1,
possibly.
