We have been around for over 100 yearsOn 9 February 1893, a petition signed by eleven Freemasons and recommended “for the favourable consideration of the MW the Grand Master” by the Master of Royal Athelstan Lodge, No 19, was presented at Freemasons’ Hall.
The petitioners prayed the MW the Grand Master – the Prince of Wales, later King Edward VII – to grant to them a Warrant for the purpose of forming a Lodge “to unite in brotherly association, members and friends of the several telegraph companies and others interested in the advancement of submarine telegraphy and electrical science from various parts of the world.”
The Petition named the Marquess of Tweeddale, KT as the first master, Sir George Elliot, Bart, Pr. G. M. South Wales, Eastern Division, first Senior Warden and Major Alexander Wood first Junior Warden.
The application was successful and a Warrant was granted on 18th February 1893.
