Ballyhalbert Coronation LOL 878

The lodge was granted a warrant in 1860. The Worshipful Master was Bro. F Moore, Deputy Master was Bro. J Bell. The lodge was known as Ballyhalbert Loyal Independent Orange Lodge until 1953 when the lodges name was changed to Ballyhalbert Coronation. The reason for this being Queen Elizabeth II coronation in 1953. The lodges first meeting place was 93 Harbour Road, Ballyhalbert, until the Orange Hall was built in 1869. A recent important date in the life of the lodge was 12th July 1988 when we were host for the 12th July Demonstration not having hosted it in nearly 40 years. The Lodge has had a very good association with all bands that have accompanied them on parade.

There have been a number of Brethren who have given the lodge outstanding service over the years. The late Bro. William Filson, Worshipful Master for 28 years 1909 to 1936. The late Bro. Herbert Gray, 11 years as Deputy Master, 11 years as Chaplain, 10 years as Worshipful Master 1937 to 1946. The late Bro. A Ledlie 1914 to 1937, Bro. F Tremlell (Sen.) 1953 to 1976 each served 24 years as secretary. Bro. J Taylor, 25 years as treasurer 1960 to 1984 and 3 years as Worshipful Master 1953 to 1955. These Brethren along with the late Bro. R Palmer Past Master and Lecturer and the late Bro. W Kirkpatrrick Past Master, the late Bro. Charles Armstrong Past Master set a standard and laid a foundation for our lodge to build on.
