Brief History of Lodge Thorntree
The name Thorntree comes from a tree that was standing during the Battle of Prestonpans in the year 1745 and was used as a focal point. The Lodge has `Working Tools` made from the timbers of the tree when it was cut down.

Our meetings are held within our own premises which we acquired in 1950, before that our meetings were held in various buildings in the town of Prestonpans.

During our symbolic formation, The Provincial Grand Lodge of East Lothian did not function, therefor the Provincial Master of Midlothian and his Office Bearers formed the Lodge. We have remained within the Provincial of Midlothian ever since.
