The Real Edward Ferrars?

Here’s an interesting find we were alerted to by one of our members.

This is a page from the book Shakespeare by Michael Wood.  Here he is showing a list of Shakespears associated with the local gentry. He mentions that the Richard Shakespeare is probably William’s grandfather.

If you look a few lines above the Shakespears you will see there is an Edward Ferrars listed as a knight along with his wife.

I wonder if this Edward had anything in common with our much beloved Edward?
