Another bite sized chunk of Blantyre History
Free Masonry played a very big part in a lot of my Families.
I am not one.
But I have done a fair amount of research because of my family connections
It is an intriguing subject and has in the past demanded a life time of study from many a scholar.
In that small amount of research from the records of my families and the research that I have done.
I have established (IN MY MIND) that all of these families first connections were through the local Masonic Lodge.
It was a case of ‘HEY FELLOW WELL MET’ Have I got a sister for you, and so the first introduction was established with two families.
Remember this is a speculation or theory of mine and nothing else. I do not have any documented evidence.
There has to be a great amount of family history just locked up in the minutes of many a Masonic Lodge meeting.
As in, who participated at the meeting and the date of the meeting, remembering that these meetings have gone on for some hundreds of years and as was the way, very meticulous records were kept. But just try and get it. I have, but so far have had no luck.
Many thanks for info on cost, will have the money ready looking forward to seeing the book.
Don’t know how you will ever find out information on Mason’s. As a daughter in the house of a Mason I never heard anything, other than that my Dad always said a Mason always looks after a Mason and his family. Yes there would be so much great information to be gathered from the records of meetings.
Well hot as hot here so off for a swim, catch up soon
All the best
