Name of creator
King Edward Lodge, No. 78, was instituted on June 24, 1905, at the chapel in North Hatley, in the District of St. Francis, on the day of its founding meeting, at which were present the Most Wor. Grand Master of the Grand Lodge of Ancient Free and Accepted Masons of the Province of Quebec and several officers of the Grand Lodge of Quebec. The Grand Master authorized the formation of King Edward Lodge and appointed its first officers. It then received its warrant on January 31, 1906.
On September 14, 2011, King Edward Lodge, No. 78, along with Lingwick Lodge, No. 79, amalgamated with Friendship Lodge, No. 66, and its members continued to belong to Friendship Lodge, operating in North Hatley.
Now in 2023, the chapel, located at 3425 Chemin Capelton in North Hatley, still appears to be a Masonic meeting place.
Following the amalgamation of the Freemason Lodges of Lingwick, Cookshire, Sawyerville, East Angus, Lac-Mégantic and North Hatley, their files were transferred to Friendship Lodge, No. 66, in North Hatley.
