I have two Loyal Order of Ancient Shepherds sashes belonging to my great great grandfather, John Smith, who was a 'Past Master' and one of the founding members of the Loyal Order of Ancient Shepherds at Lealholm. John was a local stone mason and it was his son, Frankland Smith, who built the Shepherd Hall - that's all I know. I would love any more information if anyone has any!
Anne, thanks for your post on this order, I have just been aware that my great aunt and my great grandfather were both members of members of the "Loyal Order of Ancient Shepard's" my great aunt was a life member and my great grand father was a member of the Morning Star Lodge, until this week end when tracing my family history i had never heard of this order
With good financial advice can have a safe future.
