Bisham village, which has been known by various names down the centuries, was recorded in Domesday with its villagers, cottagers, slaves, vines and meadowland. A church was also recorded there, no doubt on the beautiful riverside site of the present building, the oldest part of which is the 12th century tower. The parapet, battlements and brick quoins were added in the 15th century. The tower contains three bells dating back to 1840. The church has been considerably enlarged over the centuries. In Elizabethan times, Lady Hoby of neighbouring Bisham Abbey was responsible for the building of the Hoby chapel to house the magnificent tombs of two Knights, her husband – Sir Thomas – and his half brother – Sir Philip.
