A contribution from Past Master Hamilton McGlone........

 

Following is the copy of a letter I received following some research that I carried out from our Lodge's first minute book.  The family were all master painters.  The first association of the family with the Lodge was in around 1776.  The David Hodgkinson mentioned is a Past Master of Lodge Clackmannan 1303 who has Grand Honours from Grand Lodge.

The Lodge of Alloa was erroneously called St Johns Alloa at about this time as a result of an error made by a secretary who was also a member of the Royal Arch Chapter which was called St Johns Alloa No. 92.
