Although, as Dr. Velz writes, Honigmann may deserve "major credit in the
chronology of the Shakeshafte affair," he was not the first to argue for
a Shakeshafte/Shakespeare connection. While it is true that Chambers, in
his 1930 biography of Shakespeare, merely noted the reference to
Shakeshafte in Houghton's will, he later wrote an article suggesting a
connection with Shakespeare ("William Shakeshafte" in "Shakespearean
Gleanings" OUP, 1944) Also, an interesting argument in support of that
connection is set forth in "The Annotator," by Allan Keen and Roger
Lubbock (Putnam, London, 1954).
