History[edit]

Templeville is named after the Temple family. The Temple family resided in Maryland since the mid-1700s. It is believed the Temple plantation was located where Templeville and the surrounding area is today. A small, private cemetery for the Temple family can be found just outside of Templeville. Some of the tombstones are still readable although time has taken its toll on them. The most famous member of the Temple family was William Temple, Governor of Delaware.
