|That meaning predates S&S

in consequence of the missive, The word "sensible", penned by Tom P2
Shakespeare used it to mean common sensical, and I believe that meaning was in fairly common use by the time that S&S was written. While language purists might have disliked it, I don't believe it was considered low brow anymore.
Certainly the word has more several common meanings, though.
