Re: George Fredrick Shakespeare (1865 Birmingham)
Here area few details on George Frederick Shakespeare:
he was bapt 2 Sept 1866 at St Thomas, Birmingham, son of George Shakespeare & Sarah (nee Bateman). His parents George Shakespeare & Sarah Bateman married 5 Nov 1865 at Holy Trinity, Coventry - George was 22 and Sarah 21.
The parents of the George who married Sarah Bateman were another George Shakespeare (b 1811) and Matilda Jakeman (b 1811) - they married 27 Dec 1834 at St John, Coventry. This George was the son of Charles Shakespeare of Bulkington (although no baptism has been found for him), and Mary Millership (who married 1800 in Bulkington). Charles had an earlier wife, Eleanor Benton, with whom he had two daughters - he had earlier had an illegitimate child with another woman, for whom his father had to pay maintenance. Charles was born 1759, son of Thomas and Elizabeth Shakespeare. The line originates with a Thomas Shakespeare born in Keresley in 1717, son of another Thomas Shakespeare.
