Comment: 	Re: SHK 17.0806 Burbage's Wife

Thank you to every one of you who gave me Ellen's name, plus lots of 
details about her. You saved my life - or rather my writer's honour, so 
to speak...

I hope it is not deemed too feminist to remark on the many books and 
texts who speak of her (and other women of that time) as Brayne's 
sister, James' Burbage wife, or James's widow, without ever giving her a 
real personal identity.

Thanks, anyway.

Anne Cuneo
