The monument to Shakespeare, a half-length statue set is a niche, was installed in the Holy Trinity Church between 1616 (Shakespeare's death) and 1623 (the publication of the First Folio where Leonard Digges mentions it). It is believed to have been commissioned by Shakespeare's daughter and her husband Dr John Hall. It may have been the work of Garratt Janssen of Johnson, an Anglo-Flemish tomb-maker.

The Abbey was closely associated with the Celtic Revival. Its founding was the joint effort of the Irish Literary Theatre (founded 1899 by Lady Gregory, Edward Martyn and W.B. Yeats, with the help of George Moore), Irish actors William and Frank Fay, and manager Annie Horniman."
Sir Thomas Lucy (1532 - 1560) was an English squire in Warwickshire. Nicholas Rowe wrote (1710) that Lucy prosecuted Shakespeare for stealing a deer from Charlecote Park in 1585, and the bard aggravated the offense by mocking Lucy in a ballad. The incident, it is said, drove Shakespeare from Stratford to London.
