There are records of his baptism at the Holy Trinity Church in Stratford on April 26, 1564 leading to these beliefs because infants were supposed to be baptized three days after their birth back then (“The Life of William Shakespeare”). Scholars don’t know that much about Shakespeare’s childhood either because there are very few records to know for certain about this time in his life. There are also no records of his schooling; however it is believed that he attended the local King Edward VI grammar school from approximately age seven to fourteen, being that was the norm for young boys during this time period (“The Education of William Shakespeare”). People doubt William’s work because they believe that he had no other former education after he finished grammar school for those few years in childhood. At the age of eighteen, he married twenty-six year old Anne Hathaway on November 28, 1582.
