Great find indeed.
How exciting to dig up some history and I'm sure it was a pleasure to the Morton family and lodge St George.

Carolyn Sandercoe

I am the great-granddaughter of Charles Robert Morton who found his jewels amongst my Mum's (Nee Valerie Morton) family possessions and started the process to find out more about the jewels and his involvement in a number of Masonic Lodges. Both Sec. Paul Holland and Dr Gary Bacon along with other members at the Grand Lodge in the City have been so helpful to me in filling in an aspect of family history we had no written knowledge of. Our extended family are all pleased to make a permanent loan of the Founder's Jewel from 3rd July 1915, and to know it will be cared for and used by the St George Lodge into the future. Regards, Carolyn Sandercoe.

Carolyn, the lodge is indebted to you and your family for generously providing us with such a link to our past. You can be sure that your great grandfather's memory will be kept very much alive within the lodge. This tangible reminder of his service will be a a great memory trigger for our members for generations to come.

About Lodge St George

  • Lodge St George is a Masonic Lodge based in Brisbane Australia and is numbered 246 on the roll of the United Grand Lodge of Queensland. It was originally consecrated Lodge St George No 1152 under the Scottish Constitution in 1915. In 1920 St George joined the Queensland Grand Lodge as No 180. The Lodge changed its name to Yeronga and number to 246 when the United Grand Lodge of Queensland was formed in 1921. In 2013 Yeronga was granted permission by the Most Worshipful Grand Master to resume its original name of Lodge St George and retain its roll number of 246. Lodge St George still maintains its Scottish Ritual Work. In 2015 we celebrated our Centenary with a Re-enactment of Consecration Ceremony. Lodge St George meets at the Stones Corner Masonic Centre in Brisbane on the 3rd Wednesday night of each month except June. Tyling time is 7.00pm. We conduct our Installation Ceremony in on the 3rd Saturday in June each year.
