William Shakespeare married Anne Hathaway on November 28,1582. They had 3 children,susana:1583, and the twins: Hament an Judit 1592. Hamnet, Wiliams only son, died at age 11. All of his children where baptised.

Hamnet was the son of William Shakespeare. He and his twin sister, Judith were baptised on 2nd February 1585. There were no official records of births at that time but it was customary for a baptism to take place shortly after birth.

There are many debates over William Shakespeare. There are people who theorize that William Shakespeare, was not actually William Shakespeare. These people believe that William Shakespeare was a noble of high birth, who was using the name William Shakespeare to publish writing. There's also the belief that William Shakespeare was actually several different people writing under the name of William Shakespeare. Ultimately, there's no hard evidence to suggest that William Shakespeare was anyone other than William Shakespeare. So the answer is "YES, William Shakespeare was a real writer."

In England of Shakespeare's day, everyone had to belong to the Church of England. It was illegal not to. Therefore, by law, everyone had to be baptised.

Susannah Shakespeare was William Shakespeare's eldest child. She was baptised May 26, 1583, which suggests that she was born one or two days earlier. Shakespeare was her maiden name; after her marriage she was Mrs. Susannah Hall

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.
