This List of Lodges, which was commenced 27th November 1725, seems to have been continued until 1729. It probably served as the official record of Lodges and their members, until succeeded by the revised list for 1730.
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.
There are five lists, some are repetitive, but in alternative orders of seniority
