Before printing my Shakespearean sonnet, could someone please suggest a (free) font that looks typical of about 1600?

How about copying right from the horse's mouth?  I'm not sure which sonnet you need, but try here:

This is a Facsimile of the Chalmers-Bridgewater Copy (Aspley Imprint) of the 1609 Quarto.

There's a good font which is mock-Elizabethan from the Illinois Shakespeare Festival: it's available at the link below.

Hope it helps!
