I have a fob chain which has a rose gold medallion which was awarded to A. Yorke for a member of Daisy Lodge Jan 27 02. Where could I find more history on the lodge and perhaps a members list for A.Yorke to find out when this medallion was awarded. Kind regards Kathy York

Hi Kathy - we do not hold a members list for this organisation. You might like to try the State Library of Victoria, as they have extensive documentary evidence of Victorian organisations. Also, you might try the current Freemasons Victoria, to see if they have information on historical selective societies in Victoria: http://www.freemasonsvic.net.au[.] Good luck with your research!

Hello,

The Freegardeners still exist and currently meet monthly at the Masonic Centre in Kew. I would be happy to clarify my credentials via email or over the phone, and we are currently in the stages of organising the celebration of our 150 year anniversary in Victoria. Additionally we are seeking to the services of a local historian to compile a history of our organisation. Kind regards, David Boulton
