Viewing Event Record: Sharers' Papers


A statement of fact made between the sharers in the Globe and Sir Matthew Brend in 1634 records that, in the wake of the fire which destroyed the first Globe, Sir John Bodley agreed to extend the sharers' original thirty-one year lease by six years, under the same conditions that obtained in the first lease. The sharers then built a new playhouse, upon which they spent around £1400.
