Joan Shakespeare was the first of eight children of John Shakespeare, glover, of Stratford-upon-Avon, Warwickshire, and his wife Mary Arden.
She was baptised on 15 September 1558 at Holy Trinity, Stratford, and entered in the parish register as "Jone shakespere Daughter to John Shakspere."
She is thought to have died as an infant, possibly during the severe typhus and influenza epidemics of the late 1550s. John and Mary Shakespeare had another daughter baptised Joan on 15 April 1569.
