Well, William Shakespeare, a great writer, was born (nació) in Startford on Avon (England).

Stratford

The town of Stratford upon Avon has a long and varied history. According to archaeological finds, its earliest settlements were in the Bronze Age, and during the 7th century a monastery was built on or near the site of Holy Trinity Church. The town’s name is Saxon in origin, meaning the place where a road (Strat) crosses a River (Avon – the celtic name for river) by means of a ford. It is presumed by historians that this refers to a Roman road which crossed the river here, though there is no evidence to support this.

Stratford became a town in the late 12th century, around the time that King Richard I granted a charter, in 1196, permitting a weekly market. This development followed the clearing of the Forest of Arden, which in turn lead to an increase in agriculture in the area.

The town was affected by a series of adversities during the 16th and 17th centuries, including four serious fires that destroyed large numbers of the town’s timber framed buildings. There were also two outbreaks of the plague, the first claiming some 250 lives and the second killing more than 60 people. With a population of less than 2,000 this was a significant number of losses.

Stratford’s canal was opened in 1816 and the railway arrived in 1859. These made Stratford, which was growing in popularity as the birthplace of Shakespeare, much more accessible for visitors.
William Shakespeare

The 23rd April 1564 saw the birth of William Shakespeare in the town, the first son of glove-maker John Shakespeare and his wife, Mary Arden. Shakespeare went to London in 1587 to make his name as a playwright, poet and actor. He returned to Stratford many times during his career, and eventually moved back and lived at New Place. He died on his 52nd birthday in 1616 and was buried at Holy Trinity Church. He did, of course, become the world’s most famous playwright, and much of Stratford’s popularity today is due to its connections with the Bard.
