At the Regular Communication of St. Georges Lodge No. 4 on January 12, 1883 a motion was adopted, “that this Lodge waive as much of its territorial jurisdiction as will be necessary for the organization of a new Lodge at Montague Bridge, to be called St. Andrew’s Lodge.” St. Georges Lodge had a membership of forty-six in 1882. Eleven Demits were granted in 1883 to Brethren from the Montague area who had petitioned for the establishment of Saint Andrew’s Lodge.
