Roscius

The question might be why Camden left off the name of Shakespeare when
honoring the great men of Stratford.  That's the beef, or lack of it.
As Ross says, "In the annotator's opinion, the great actor William
Shakespeare certainly should be counted with John of Stratford and Hugh
Clopton as a Stratford notable."  Does Ross also hold this opinion, that
Shakespeare should also have been mentioned by Camden?  If not, why not?
