Quick Reference


Shakespeare's granddaughter, only child of John and Susanna Hall, baptized 21 February 1608. Shakespeare bequeathed to her almost all of his plate. She married Thomas Nash in 1626. When her father died, in 1635, they moved into New Place.

Her husband died in 1647. He left New Place and other property to his cousin, Edward Nash, but Elizabeth and her mother contested the will and retained the property.

She married John (later Sir John) Bernard on 5 June 1649, in which year her mother died. Some time afterwards the Bernards moved to his estate in Abington, Northamptonshire, where she died in 1670. She directed that New Place be offered for sale to Edward Nash, but he did not buy it, and it was sold in 1675 to Sir Edward Walker, passing from him into the Clopton family.

Elizabeth had no children. With her death, Shakespeare's direct family came to an end.
