ANNE HATHAWAY'S COTTAGE
Situated in the village of Shottery, a mile from Stratford, Anne Hathaway's Cottage was the home of William Shakespeare's wife before they married in 1582, when she was twenty-six and he was eighteen. Her father, Richard Hathaway, was a farmer, and the family home was known as Hewlands. The house remained a working farm until the 19th century, and was lived in by Hathaways and descendants of the family for 300 years. The Hathaway farmhouse was built in two main stages. Much of the lower portion, as seen on the right from the garden and consisting of about two-thirds of the present building, dates from the mid-15th century and probably comprised the extent of the house in which Anne Hathaway grew up. The taller portion was added in the 17th century, possibly by Bartholomew Hathaway, Anne's eldest brother, who died in 1624. Some refurbishment occurred in the late 17th century: the central chimney was rebuilt in 1697 and bears the initials of John Hathaway.
