Malone has successfully proved that Charlecote the park of Sir Thomas Lucy whence Shakespeare is said to have stolen deer did not exist as a park in the poet's time The Lucys determined not to lose the honour of being robbed by the poet have since shifted the locality.

One recurring theme through the annotations will be references to a 1930's children's book, The Heir of Charlecote. By 1665 I couldn't stand it any more, broke down and bought a copy -- and have since shared it with several friends. They don't write children's books like that any more. It's a 1600-ish adventure story about a young boy by the name of Lucy -- probably this Tom Lucy's grandfather.

The Heir of Charlecote is by Mark Dallow, available at www.abebooks.com .
