1 1 Eureka Masonic Lodge No. 47, Dundalk and its Membership By Larry Conlon FRSAI 1 Introduction Freemasonry is one of the world s oldest secular fraternal societies. 2 Its members are taught moral lessons by a series of rituals performed within each Lodge. Freemasonry arose from obscure origins in the late 16th to early 17th century 3 and can now be found world-wide, with a membership estimated at around six million, including approximately 150,000 in Scotland and Ireland, over 250,000 in England and almost two million members in the United States. The origin of the Freemasons' society in Ireland dates back to the stone masons of the midtwelfth century. 4 These early masons worked on the construction of the medieval churches and cathedrals. Up to the year 1688, Trinity College, Dublin, had both operative masons (who were involved in erecting new buildings in the college), and speculative masons (a Freemasons' lodge having been established there), within its confines. 5 Speculative masonry (from which modern freemasonry stems) was derived from these operative masons. However, speculative masons never actually undertook the active design or construction of buildings. Speculative masonry developed from these early craft guilds, adopting the operative masons' symbolism of set-square and compass, level and trowel, but imbuing them with a set of spiritual and moral meanings. As time progressed speculative masonry became less and less associated with the craft guilds and developed into a society in its own right. In the eighteenth-century Freemasonry was associated with the enlightenment and even radicalism. 6 However, by the nineteenth and twentieth century s it became a respectable fraternity attracting the middle and upper classes of society. 7 The fraternity is administratively organised into independent Grand Lodges which consists of subordinate (or constituent) Lodges. 8 The first Grand Lodge, the Grand Lodge of England, was founded on 24 th June 1717, when four existing London Lodges met for a joint dinner. 9 This rapidly expanded into a regulatory body, which most English Lodges joined. The Grand Lodge of Ireland and the Grand Lodge of Scotland were formed in 1725 and 1736 respectively. 10 The leader of Freemasons was titled Grandmaster who was invariably a member of the nobility. 11 1

2 2 A Lodge is the basic organisational unit of Freemasonry. Every new Lodge must have a Warrant issued by a Grand Lodge, authorising it to meet and transact business. 12 It will elect, initiate and promote its members and officers. Like any organisation, the lodge will have formal business to transact including the management of charity funds, correspondence and reports, membership subscriptions and accounts. Every Masonic Lodge elects certain officers to execute the necessary Lodge business. The Worshipful Master (essentially chairman of the lodge) is always an elected officer. Then there is the Senior and Junior Wardens (vice chairmen), the Secretary and the Treasurer. All lodges will have a Tyler, (who guards the door to the lodge room while the lodge is in session), sometimes elected and sometimes appointed by the Master. In addition to these elected officers, lodges will have various appointed officers. 13 There are three main degrees in Freemasonry although the highest degree that can be obtained is the 33 rd degree. There are different branches of Freemasonry; the first three degrees are known as craft Masonry. 14 Much has been made of the secrecy surrounding the Masonic Order. 15 However, as Robinson has pointed out, the Order and similar fraternal societies were, in reality, not as secret as often supposed. Often they were not 'secret societies' in the sense that membership was secret, but they were societies with secrets designed to preserve and protect the brotherhoods' rituals, oral traditions and methods of mutual recognition... their secret symbols were publicly displayed on specific calendar dates; not as is commonly believed to provoke antagonism, but rather to provoke envy and tantalize potential support. 16 For example, as late as 1815, there were public Masonic processions in Dundalk. 17 Moreover, as will be seen later, the prominence and standing of many members of the Masonic Order made it inevitable that the brotherhood, as it is often referred to by its members, was to the forefront of public notice and at the heart of Irish society. 18 Lodge No. 47 based in Dundalk followed this tradition having a membership consisting of many prominent citizens from the town and further afield. The Formation of Eureka Lodge No.47. A signed memorial dated 4 th September 1848, was sent to the Grand Lodge of Free & Accepted Masons in Dublin, bearing the names of the Honourable Augustus George Frederick 2

3 3 Jocelyn, (a senior Freemason of the 33 rd Degree), his father in-law, Sir John Macneill, together with several other registered Master Masons praying for a new Warrant to be issued to them, to hold a Masonic Lodge in the town of Dundalk. The Grand Lodge of Free and Accepted Masons of Ireland granted their request to form Eureka Lodge No. 47, which met in town of Dundalk on a monthly basis from the 13 th October 1848 until October The formation and institution of Eureka Masonic lodge No. 47 in the town of Dundalk in the mid-nineteenth century by members of the Macneill family, 19 was to impact greatly on the industrial, military, and commercial life of the town, for almost another one hundred-and-twenty years. Amongst the membership of Eureka lodge are listed the names of a number of the country s well-known civil engineers and architects, together with commissioned army officers. 20 The membership register also reveals the names of a number of the prominent professional people, from both Ireland and Britain, who served as physicians, policemen as well as merchants and manufacturers. The membership list reads like a who s who of the Dundalk area. The local press reported on the inaugural meeting of Eureka Masonic Lodge No.47 which took place on the 13 th October 1848:...On Friday, a brilliant reunion of Free and Accepted Masons took place in Dundalk. Immediately after the new Warrant, was read and approved, Bro. Sir John Macneill was Installed as the first Worshipful Master of the Eureka lodge No.47, with Bros., Samuel J. Morton, and Bro. the Hon., and Reverend Lord John Beresford, (afterwards 4th Marquis of Waterford), were installed in their respective offices as senior and junior wardens of the lodge. Several gentlemen were proposed for the honours of Masonry. The Lodge being closed, the brethren accompanied the Worshipful Master to his delightful mansion, at Mountpleasant, where they were most hospitably entertained. 21 The local press in June of 1859, reported on the details of another Masonic banquet that was held in Dundalk by Eureka Lodge No.47 together with the members from St. Johns Lodge No.384 Dundalk. The core of Lodge No. 47 was made up from engineers and military personnel. 22 The following is an extract from a local press report and highlights the importance of these two spheres of life to Lodge No. 47: 3

4 4 Bro. the Hon. A.F.G. Jocelyn, presided; and the vice-chair was able filled by Bro. Dr. Scott. 23 Several guests had distinguished places assigned to them at the table, amongst which we noticed Bro. Colonel Doherty, late 13 th Light Dragoons; Captains Clarke, and Huddleston, 13 th Light Dragoons, and Bro J. Leonard, from Banbridge. Grace was said and thanks given, by the Chaplin of the Lodge, Bro. J. Wright... The cloth being removed, the Worshipful Chairman gave the usual loyal toast of The Queen and the Craft, which was received with loyal enthusiasm so proverbial amongst Masons. The next toast was the Grand Masters of England and Scotland, coupled with the name of Bro. Captain Huddleston, of the Oxford Lodge, who responded with a neat address. Our own Grand Master, the Duke of Leinster, was then toasted with the usual honours and applause...the toast of the Army and Navy coupled with the names of Colonel Doherty, and Captain Gaussen, R.N., was then given in a trilling speech from the Chair...The health of the Chairman was then proposed by Bro. Thomas Tarleton, and was received with raptures of applause...sir John Macneill then proposed the health of Bro. Francis Scott, in a flattering speech, to which the worthy Doctor responded in neat terms. 24 Dining and speech-making is a fundamental element of Masonic activity and the different lodges often met to dine following their ceremonies. For example, such an event for St. John s Lodge, No. 384 was described in the press: The brethren then adjourned to Arthur s Hotel, where about 30 of them sat down to a sumptuous entertainment, which was served up with the greatest care and attention. Brother Semple, WM, occupied the chair, and after the usual loyal, patriotic, and Masonic toasts were drunk and responded to, the brethren separated at an early hour. 25 Lodges had specific accommodation requirements for their ceremonies as well as dining facilities. To meet these requirements Lodge No, 47 built a new hall in New Lodge Rooms for Masonic Lodge No. 47 Dundalk. A detailed statement of the accounts presented by the Building Committee of the new Masonic Hall, during the official handing over the building to the charge of the trustees of the hall in Dundalk in February 1887, reveals that the design of this early Masonic hall at 23 Jocelyn Street was the work of architect William Stirling, 26 who had drawn up the Bill of Quantities, and 4

5 5 supervised the work during the erection of the building which commenced in Stirling had an office in the Dundalk. 28 The actual contract to build the new hall was won by the local building contractor James MacAdorney, of Dundalk for the sum of The prime mover for the building of the new hall was Malcolm Brown Murray, the proprietor of the Dundalk Distillery who placed a gift of 300, at the disposal of the building committee in order that project would qualify for a building mortgage, with the remainder of the funding, to be raised jointly between the membership of Eureka and St Johns lodges Nos.47, and 384 respectively, 30 together with remuneration which was received from Charity Lodge No.570, which consisted of the 5 th & 6 th Regiments of the Royal Inniskilling Dragoon Guards, for their use of the Masonic Hall, during when quartered at Dundalk Military Barracks. 31 The only non-masonic organisation that had ever used the new hall, for meetings was the non-denominational Plymouth Brethren which held their religious meetings in the hall, on an agreed rental basis, from 1887 until 1902, 32 when they then vacated the Masonic Hall, and later moved to No. 28 Jocelyn Street, where they built the Meeting Room which is presently occupied by the Dundalk Branch of the Irish Red Cross. 33 Although Eureka lodge No.47 had been established just over a century and a quarter previously the construction of a new and purpose built Masonic Hall at No. 23 Jocelyn Street in 1887 in a sense displayed, for the first time, the public face of freemasonry in County Louth. 34 The remainder of this article lists the members of Lodge No. 47 from its formation in 1848 to 1974 when it surrendered its Warrant and ceased to operate. The first section lists the founding members of the lodge and the remainder are listed in alphabetical order.
