History

We read in the minutes of January 1807 that two brethren petition the Lodge to hold meetings at Bridge of Weir. This motion is actioned on 12th May 1807 when the brethren of Lodge St. Barchan attend Bridge of Weir to confer the E.A. degree on 6 candidates.

While the finances seem to be on a firm footing with the purchase of property it is also noted on 30th November 1807 that both Archibald Wilson and John Stewart Snr offered the office of Treasurer. Both are fined after refusing.

It may simply be coincidence, but on the same date it was minuted that a letter was received from The Grand Lodge of Scotland requesting assistance in the building of a new Lodge. This was refused.
