In 1760 the "Ancient" Grand Lodge of England authorized a Lodge on Virgin Gorda Island known as Virgin Gorda Lodge, No. 82. Another was granted authority in l763 at Tortola and it third was chartered by the "Moderns'' in 1765 At the Union of 1813 however, not one of the three was placed on the Register.

Brother John Ryan was appointed Provincial Grand Master in 1777. Lodges were also chartered in these Islands by the Grand Lodges of Scotland, Pennsylvania, Denmark, France and Colon.

They sent me a email with tracking number, the gloves came one day ahead of scheduled delivery. And they don't sell IFAMM/ CLANDESTINE products. I highly recommend them.” Brother Walter Zelaya, Middle Island, NY
