The recent meeting of MAMR took place at Brookfield Hall in Westhoughton on the outskirts of Bolton. WBro Chris Powell spoke about the early origins of the Royal Order of Scotland,and the members were joined by 12 brethren of the order who were keen to learn more about its origins.
Prior to the meeting the brethren enjoyed refreshments and a superb buffet before Allan opened the meeting and invited Chris to speak. He had discovered that despite the reference to ‘Scotland’ in the name of the order it did in fact have its origins in London in the mid 18th century.
The fruits of Chris’s research will be available in the Transactions for 2019 when published. All the brethren in attendance found the talk both interesting and most informative.
