I know that this is not a fresh topic, but has anyone noticed
co-extensive geographical mistakes with those of Shakespeare in ANY
literary artifacts from the period? It is interesting to consider the
possibility of a source text for those mistakes noted in the plays and
also to consider that others may have been misinformed by that same
text.

All the best,
