Subject:        Folk Anecdote

As I mentioned in an earlier post, my husband is from rural north-west
Worcestershire, near the little town of Tenbury Wells--actually, his
family's smallholding was in the village of Eastham. In Eastham, there
is a folk anecdote associating Shakespeare with an estate which used to
be there, called Eastham Park. This estate was part of the lands of Sir
Thomas Lucy in the 16th century, and the story goes--of course!--that
this is the 'real' place where WS was supposedly caught poaching. I know
this anecdote is mostly associated with Charlecote, but has anyone else
ever heard it?
