List 1 (1725 - 1729) : List 2 ( 1730 - 1732) : List 3 (1736 - 1739)  :   List 13 (1740 - 1755) :  List 14 (1756 - 1769) :  List 15 (1770 - 1780) :    List 16 (1781 - 1791) : List 17 (1792 - 1813)

List Of Lodges 1740-55.

My interest in the Lodges are the establishments which they attach themselves, in particular the early taverns and the coffee houses, although the detail of address is fairly limited.

LIST No. 13. List of Lodges 1740-55.

The engraved list for 1740 constitutes one of the most important links in the chain of our Lodge History, marking, as it does, the first change of numbers; the previous (and earliest) numeration having extended from 1729 to 1739.

The numeration which this change inaugurates, ranged from 1740 to 1755 inclusive, being followed by those of 1756-69, 1770-80, 1781-91, and 1792-1813.

It is remarkable, moreover, for containing more errors in regard to dates, than will be found (appearing for the first time) in any other of the Official Lists.
