During the 19th century it was believed that Sir Francis Bacon wrote under the pen name of William Shakespeare. The London Museum of Art has a painting of Willism Shakespeare and it does resemble the likeness of Sir Francis Bacon. A little. Shakespeare was supposedly bornin 1564, with Sir Francis born 1561 in London, died 1626. Lord Bacon was knighted, the noble son of Sir Nicholas Bacon. He achieved the rank of Lord Chancellor of England and other such honors. But he is widely known for his philosophical writings of science in particular. It was Lord Bacon who said: "They that destroy God destroy man's nobility; for certainly man is of kin to the beasts in his body, and, if he be not kin to God by his spirit, he is a base and ignoble creature." Some of this lineage came to Virginia early in the 17 century and the genealogy is found on www.virginiapioneers.net
