This year, in 2022, we are celebrating 250 years of Freemasonry in South Africa. Most Freemasons know or have heard that Freemasonry existed in Scotland from at least the late 1500s, that four Masonic Lodges formed the Grand Lodge of England in 1717 and that the Grand Lodges of Ireland, Scotland and France were formed shortly thereafter. We accept and enjoy the presence of hundreds of Masonic Lodges around South Africa today, but not many Freemasons know where or how it all started in our country.
