I am currently working on the profile of William Shakespeare and his family on behalf of the England Project's Managed Profiles team. It looks like this profile was incorrectly merged with the profile of Shakespeare's nephew Thomas Hart in 2017. I have created a separate profile for him here and propose to detach this profile from the Shakespeare family.
