You may want to read Miles Smith's To The Reader before trying too hard
to put Shakespeare on  staff.

Comment:        Re: SHK 13.2209 Re: Shakespeare's Bible

It is my understanding that there is at the Folger a Geneva Bible that
was purchased with the claim that it was a bible actually owned by
Shakespeare.  The Bible has been on view within the last few years. In a
class I recently attended at Harvard Professor Garber insisted that the
Geneva Bible (not necessarily the one at the Folger) was the Bible that
Shakespeare used. Annotations and marginalia in the Folger Bible have
been claimed by some to be in the hand of the Bard. These claims have
been pursued at great length on other sites
