Shakespeare was born and brought up in Stratford-upon-Avon, England. We know where Shakespeare was born because the baptismal register of the Holy Trinity parish church, in Stratford-upon-Avon, shows the following entry for 26th April 1564: “Gulielmus filius Johannes Shakespeare” (William, son of John Shakespeare).
