Joan Shakespeare was born in Warwickshire, England.

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."[1][2]

She is thought to have died as an infant,[3] possibly during the severe typhus and influenza epidemics of the late 1550s.[2] John and Mary Shakespeare had another daughter baptised Joan on 15 April 1569.[4][3]

Shakespeare-6 and Shakespeare-11 do not represent the same person because: Second child named Joan born after the death of the first. Customs may have been to keep reusing the same child's name until one survived.

Shakespeare-6 and Shakespeare-11 appear to represent the same person because: Shakespeare-6 is the correct Profile for Joan. Shakespeare-11 is the same person, but does not have the spouse and or good sources.
