| Harrington Perceptory # 14 was named after Very
Eminent Knight Thomas Douglas Harrington. It was chartered in 1871 in
Trenton, Ontario and moved to Almonte and finally North Bay, Ontario in
1893. Not only was V. Em. Kt. Harrington at the very first meeting of the
Provincial Grand conclave for Canada in 1855, but his death was mentioned
in the Proceedings in 1882. What is important about this is that
Harrington Preceptory was named after him while he was still alive.
Current Statutes only allow the naming of a Preceptory after someone who
is no longer living.
As a matter of interest, the next time you are in the Masonic
Complex of Prescott look at the picture of Thomas Douglas Harrington who
by the way lived in Prescott and is presently resting in Blue church Yard.
| The Order of Malta, which is the second Order of Knights
Templar still exists in its original form in Rome. The Masonic Knights of
Malta and the Papal Knights, wear approximately the same Mantles and gear.
This is only one of the Orders of Knighthood which continued its existence.
Did you know: Doants were a class of men who were attached to the 0rder Of
St. John of Jerusalem or Knights of Malta. They did not take the vows of the
Order, but were employed in different offices of the convent and hospital.
In token of their connection with the order, they were allowed to wear a
cloak called a Demi-cross.
