8 This gentleman was born in 1587, and was brother to Thomas Quiney, who married Shakspeare's youngest daughter. It does not appear when Thomas Quiney died. There is a defect in the Regifter during the years 1642, 1643, and 1644; and another lacuna from March 17, to Nov. 18, 1663. Our poet's fon-in-law probably died in the latter of those periods; for his wife, who died in Feb. 1661-2, in the Register of Burials for that year is deferibed thus: Judith, uxor Thomas Quiney." Had her husband been then dead, he would have been denominated vidua. MALONE,
