Shakespeare had three children. Susannah was born in May 1583, six months after William married Anne (so Anne was pregnant at the time of the wedding).

Two years later (1585) the twins Judith and Hamnet (girl and boy) arrived.

Hamnet died in in early August 1596 (cause unknown; there was no known plague outbreak in Stratford at the time). The two girls survived to adulthood, and married.
