Founded by Saxons in the 7th century, the name Stratford-upon-Avon is made up of Celtic and Saxon words with straet, meaning "street", and ford, meaning that a Roman road forded the River Avon at the site of the town. A typical village until the 12th century, it was transformed into a town and granted the right to hold weekly markets by King Richard I in 1196. On 23 April 1564, William Shakespeare was born in a house on Henley Street. He married Anne Hathaway and moved to London, beginning a successful career as an actor, writer and part owner of a playing company called the Lord Chamberlain’s Men, later known as the King’s Men. Shakespeare spent the last five years of his life in Stratford, by now a wealthy man. He died on 23 April 1616 and was buried in Holy Trinity Church in Stratford. In 1769 the actor David Garrick staged a major Shakespeare Jubilee which saw the construction of a large rotunda and the influx of many visitors for the three day event. This contributed to the growing phenomenon of Bardolatry which made Stratford a major tourist destination.
