Google What day was I born?  If it’s right, Shakespeare was baptized on a Wednesday and, therefore, supposed to have been born on a Sunday three days earlier.

 

But the child born on the Sabbath Day,
 Is fair and wise and good in every way.

In response to Hannibal’s inquiry: it was a Sunday. See http://www.searchforancestors.com/utility/dayofweek.html.

 

Best to all,
