Images from the Dugdale Archive

SHAKSPER subscriber Joseph Egert obtained from the Dugdale Archive at Merevale Hall (UK) photographs of a Dugdale MS notebook page dated “1634” (Dugdale MS-Vol. VII-p.10), containing Dugdale’s handwritten transcriptions of the Holy Trinity Church epitaphs of (1) William Shakespeare, (2) his wife Anne (d.1623), (3) his daughter Susanna (d.1649), (4) his son-in-law John Hall (d.1635), and (5) his grandaughter’s husband Thomas Nashe (d.1647). These notes formed the basis of the printed versions on page 518 and 520 of Dugdale’s Antiquities of Warwickshire (1656). The Dugdale family representative has granted Egert permission to publish these facsimiles online, and he has chosen SHAKSPER as the place those images will reside. These images are From the Merevale Archives with the permission of Sir William Dugdale, who retains copyright. We all owe Dr. Egert and the Merevale Archives thanks for allowing SHAKSPER to distribute and archive these images. The images from the Archive are followed by images from the 1656 Dugdale Antiquities of Warwickshire. Following these will be photographs I took of the Funerary Monument in Holy Trinity Church, which will be followed by a compilation file I composed of these and other related images. Hardy M. Cook, Editor.
