The DORIC Lodge took its rise from a meeting of various brethren held at the "Earl of Eglington," situated in Bow, East London. It was resolved to
petition Grand Lodge to form a Lodge to be known as "The Doric," which was intended to embrace the neighbouring districts from Bow to
Mile End, the sponsoring Lodge being the Lodge of Stability No.217.

It was customary at that time for Lodges to have a much more local function, prompted no doubt by the less swift (though sedate) systems
of travel and communication.

In due course the Grand Secretary communicated to Brother Henry Bradley that the Grand Master had granted the petition, whereupon
Bros. Bradley, Hawkins, Scurr and Rule had a meeting on the 12th November 1862, at which the date of Consecration was fixed as the
l0th December.
