Abstract

In the following note, I present evidence of a relationship between Edward Alleyn and the Sherley family of Wiston in Sussex. Through an examination of local archives, Henslowe’s diary, and other theatre history, the note argues that the ‘Edward Allen’ recorded in Anne Sherley’s will could be Edward Alleyn. In so doing, it suggests a connection between Alleyn and the Sherley brothers dramatized by Day, Rowley, and Wilkins in The Travels of the Three English Brothers (1607), and Henry Sherley, the author of The Martyred Soldier (1622/3).
