Provincial Tie Design
The Province of Guernsey and Alderney in the Channel Islands is one of the smallest Provinces of the United Grand Lodge of England, supporting just eleven Lodges.
Freemasonry came to Guernsey, the second largest Island in the Channel Islands, in 1753 in the reign of King George II. The Grand Master of the Ancient & Honourable Society of Free and Accepted Masons was John Proby Baron of Carysfort in the County of Wicklow, Ireland, and Freemasonry was spreading fast across the length and breadth of the land.
May 10th 1753 witnessed the birth of the first Lodge in Guernsey, the Lily Tavern Lodge No. 228 in St. Peter Port by the Moderns Grand Lodge.
