“Temple Grafton has a long history, having been mentioned in the Domesday Book of 1086.”The parish church of St. Andrew in the village Temple Grafton of was entirely rebuilt in 1875 by the benefactor, William Carlise. to a design by Frederik Preedy on the site of an older edifice. There have been several churches on this site including a 13th century chapel for the Knights Hospitaller. The present building is done of lias stone with sandstone dressings, and has tiled roofs. Many scholars believe it to be the place where William Shakespeare married Anne Hathaway in 1582, since records of the marriage do not appear in Stratford itself, and a licence was issued for Shakespeare to marry in Temple Grafton. However marriage records for the period have been lost.
