Steve Benbows protege BS: Oddfellows (25) RE: BS: Oddfellows 09 Dec 08


Yes, I am a new member. I am a member of the Manchester Unity Oddfellows formed 1812.

The English got rid of the compulsory ritual side just after the civil war and so the IOOF (Independent order of odd fellows) was formed. America set sail on her own in the original form of the Odd Fellows and personally I cant blame her.

The Oddfellows were trades people who didn't have a guild of their own and therefore Odd.

www.oddfellows.co.uk tells the story better than I could.

Peter.
