Standish Church History

From British History Online

Standish Church

As the mother church of a large parish that once included Hardwicke, Randwick, and Saul, and as a church that belonged to Gloucester Abbey, Standish church is likely to have been built many years before the first known reference to it c. 1188.

In 1684 Robert Frampton, then Bishop of Gloucester, became Vicar of Standish; when he was deprived of his bishopric as a non-juror the authorities connived at his retention of the vicarage, and he died at Standish in 1708.
