- Shakespeare's Birthplace This is the house where it is thought that Shakespeare was born and spent his formative years. The house originally belonged to William Shakespeare's father John, who became a successful Stratford businessman. John and Mary Shakespeare moved from nearby Snitterfield to Stratford in 1529, shortly after getting married. It is known from Stratford records that the Shakespeare family were residing in Henley street by 1552 and that William Shakespeare was born in 1564. It is assumed from this collection of dates that this building in Henley Street was William Shakespeare's Birthplace. Information obtained from www.stratford.co.uk
