Comment:        Re: SHK 15.1789 John Shakespeare

I think the reason there has been no "full-scale biography" of John
Shakespeare or John Heminges is that there is simply not enough material
from which to construct one.  A chapter or an article, yes; a full-scale
biography, no.

For John Heminges [and a number of other early modern theatre people of
significance] see the newly published Oxford Dictionary of National
Biography, now [or soon to be] available at your library [or to very
rich people], or by subscription on-line.
