Antient Manor Royal Arch Chapter No 4511


What is Royal Arch Masonry ?

The Royal Arch is the continuation of Craft Freemasonry. Its members, called Companions, meet in Chapters under a Grand Chapter. Chapters are ruled over by three Principals, who rule conjointly, and the Grand Chapter is ruled over by three Grand Principals, with a Pro First Grand Principal when the First Grand Principal is a Royal Prince.

About Antient Manor Chapter

Antient Manor Chapter was formed by members of Antient Manor Lodge No4511* in 1928. Antient Manor Lodge was the Mother Lodge of Prescot Lodge, (ie Prescot Lodge was formed mainly by members of Antient Manor Lodge).

Antient Manor is a thriving chapter with a buoyant membership meeting at Prescot Masonic Hall four times a year.

New Companion For Antient Manor 

The Chapter gained a new companion recently.

Companion Glyn Thomas was exalted in a superb ceremony presided over by the Three Principals, the Second and Third principals being unable to attend Chapter Z Mel Riley was assisted by acting H Les Norton and acting J Ken Hopkins. 

Glyn was conducted around the Chapter by PS John Roughley assisted by 1st asst S John Whalley and proved an excellent candidate. 

During the festive board Glyn was presented with the booklet explaining the workings of Royal Arch Chapter and its history by E Comp Frank Davies and was welcomed into the Chapter by the Principals, members and guests present. Glyn was keen to respond to the toast given to his health proposed by E Comp David Hickman and said he looked forward to many years of pleasure in the Chapter.
