Lodge Canongate Kilwinning No 2

Famous Freemasons of Lodge Canongate Kilwinning

Much has been said and written about Lodge Canongate Kilwinning and Robert Burns and it is all too easy to forget the many famous and arguably, infamous members, who have traversed its doorstep. In our efforts to expand and update the History of the Lodge, information on notable members will appear over the coming months and years. In some cases there will be a crossover from Poets Corner as many were Poets Laureate of the Lodge. There will also be a crossover from the section in the website on Honorary members for the same reason. We trust you will appreciate the History of these notable Characters and the influences they had, not only on the Lodge, but Edinburgh and the world at large. There is no set order to how this information will appear but we will attempt to keep the list in a chronological order based on the date they became member of the Lodge, if known.
