William Shakespeare (1564-1616) was married to Anne Hathaway shortly after November 27, 1582, and their daughter Susanna was born six months later (baptised May 23, 1583). Shakespeare was 19 when his daughter was born, and Anne Hathaway was 26 or 27 years old.

When his twins (Judith and Hamnet) were born in early 1585, Shakespeare was 20.
