History

Harmony Lodge was granted dispensation April 5, 1855 when the first 3 principal officers were installed with W. Bro. Win. Mussen, W.M. of York Lodge 286 G.R.I. presiding.

    1st W.M. was W. Bro. Jeremaih Taylor

    1st S.W. was Bro. John Brown

    1st J.W. was Bro. Henry Morgan

 

The W.M. was then regularly installed at a special Past Mastersí meeting in Hamilton on June 28, 1855. Harmony Lodge, being formed prior to the Grand Lodge of Canada, was granted a warrant from the Grand Lodge of Ireland and numbered 358. The warrant was issued July 1856, however the Lodge held itís first meeting as Harmony No. 27 on February 25, 1856. In 1858, after the union of the Ancient Grand Lodge and the Grand Lodge of Canada, Harmony Lodge was renumbered as No. 57.

 

Few other firsts include:

    1st Candidate was Reuben Taylor, son of the first W.M.

    1st Grand Lodge Officer was R.W. Bro. Rev. George Chrystal

    1st Grand Master to visit was M.W. Bro. John Ross Robertson

    1st D.D.G.M. was R.W. Bro. Hugh Johnson in 1917

 

Members from Harmony Lodge formed Wentworth Lodge, which in turn formed T.H. Simpson Lodge. Harmony Lodge members also formed Lincoln Lodge. In 2006, T.H. Simpson Lodge Amalgamated with Wentworth Lodge to be Wentworth Lodge No. 166 meeting in Stoney Creek. Lincoln Lodge No. 544 continues to meet in nearby Abingdon.
