This tree is NOT complete and does not include everyone that could be on it (please see further notes at the bottom).

It is mainly intended to indicate how the early Craft left UK shores. Boxes outlines in purple are clickable


This family tree is based on my own research as well as other source material that can be found on the internet, or in books. Despite this, there are some inaccuracies as there is sometimes conflicting information.


It is hard to illustrate what degree level was given by whom,so I have left them off. However, a couple of the more interesting ones are indicated by intermediate yellow boxes.


The years given indicate the first initiation, and in some cases are only approximate but should be within a year either way.
