Quick Reference

(1841–1929), Scottish scholar, member of the New Shakspere Society. Her research into local associations is objective rather than fanciful (although occasionally inaccurate). Books include Shakespeare's Warwickshire Contemporaries (1897, rev. 1907) and Shakespeare's Family (1901). Shakespeare's Environment (1914) reproduces her findings on John Shakespeare's accumulating debts and obligations.
