New Film Anonymous: Edward de Vere – The Bard of Hackney?
Brooke House A new film that opens this week claims that it was in fact Edward de Vere 17th Earl of Oxford who wrote Shakespeare’s plays. De Vere lived in Stoke Newington from 1592 to 1596 then moved to the fashionable Clapton where he remained until his death in 1604. He lived in a house called King’s Place (later Brooke House) which stood where the B6 college now stands.
