It was great to meet brother and sister Martyn and Wendy Jaggard who came to the Birthplace on a mission.  They are currently tracing their family tree and hoped that a visit to Stratford-upon-Avon and Shakespeare’s Birthplace might help them to establish a link with Isaac and William Jaggard who printed the First Folio in 1623.  They brought with them a newspaper cutting from the 1960s that their Grandmother had kept, which mentioned a family of Jaggards with strong Shakespearean connections living and working in Stratford, including a Wendy Jaggard employed by the Shakespeare Birthplace Trust.  We wish Martyn and Wendy well with their search and look forward to further news.
