Someone one named William Shakspere lived there. Whether he was the person who was the bard we don't know for sure. I suspect the "tomb" was added a few centuries later in response to tourist traffic.
Also they refer to him as a "gent."(which I am taking to mean stands for gentleman). The William Shakspere was a man of means.
There is no birth entry in there for him but there is a man named John Shakspere living there at the time who could have been his father. I know sources claim he is, but with no birth record that I can see it's hard to tell. In addition if his mother was really the daughter of someone who was considered "affluent" then I think there is your answer about how he could have gained an education sufficient to be able to master language the way he did.
