Deputation to Cupar No.19

 

 

On Saturday 10th August 2013, Lodge St John Corstorphine No.788 were invited to attend a special Deputation to the 300 year old Lodge Coupar O' Fife No.19, where they had been asked to carry out a Fellowcraft Degree.

The evening was well attended and the Brethren were very warmly welcomed - and the degree work went very well - the first of the season with all the Office Bearers in their newly promoted positions.

 

Cupar No.19 August 2013

 

Lodge Coupar o' Fife can trace it's roots back more than 300 years. At the formation of The Grand Lodge of Scotland in 1736, the Master Dr John Moncrieffand his two wardens John Ross & John Sheenmade the trek to Edinburgh to represent the Lodge.  Nowadays a trip to Edinburgh can be made quite comfortably by car, bus or train in less than an hour, but over 250 years ago these brethren faced a long journey by stage-coach and ferry to reach the Capital.

For some reason the Charter from The Grand Lodge of Scotland was not obtained in 1736, but some years later on 6th February 1758  The charter itself mentions that the Lodge had been known to exist for at least 100 years before then.
