This strip takes a few liberties, because Robert Arden, William Shakespeare's grandfather, was in reality a gentleman farmer and landowner, not a working tenant farmer. The Arden family were landed gentry, and so rather well off compared to most people in the 16th century.

He probably owned two wheelbarrows.
