Thomas Shakespear, Mystery-Meriden
Thomas Shakespear born approx 1794. On October 8, 1833 he married Lydia Harper.
The 1851 Census shows him living with his wife Lydia and his daughter Mary Ayar age 34.
This indicates that Mary Shakespear Ayer was not the child of Lydia Harper Shakespear.
Therefore, Thomas was most likely married previous to his marriage with Lydia Harper.
Any help is appreciated.
