Templar 6  Brother Alexander Deuchar Revived the Templar tradition in Scotland in the early 19th Century. The Deuchar family had been Jacobite but transferred their allegiance to the House of Hanover Hanoverian cause before 1745, when a prominent Jacobite, Lyon of Easter Ogil carried off the great sword of Deuchar the Sword was recovered after the Battle of Culloden in 1746 and in the possession of Alexander when he started his revival of the Templar 6 Scottish Knights Templar. The New Order started formally in 1805 when a Charter was issued to by the Grand Enc of IrelandGrand Encampment of Ireland previously the High Templar's of Ireland Lodge, under the title of the Edinburgh Encampment No 31. It became the Grand Assembly of the Knights Templar in Edinburgh.

Since the mid nineteenth century myths, legends and anecdotes connecting the Templar's to the Battle of Bannockburn have created Degrees in Freemasonry, such as the Royal Order of Scotland. Allude to the ancient story of Rosslyn and the Scottish Knights Templar.

The Knights Templar in the early days of their History in Scotland were associated with Brother William Earl of Orkney Photo  St Clair 3rd Earl of Orkney and 1st Earl of Caithness who built 250px-Rosslyn Chapel Rosslyn Chapel. In the Rosslyn line and true tradition of our Brethren our next Brother William St Clair of Rosslyn who became the first Grand Lodge of Scotland Crest  Grand Master of Grand Lodge of Scotland and the great keeper of the true Secrets that has been handed down in the protection of our Knights Templar.

250px-Rosslyn Chapel  Who Built his Church with many forms of one who can follow the signs incorporated in its interior from the:

Green ManGreen Man, Apprentice PillarMusical Notes, Fluer dethe Fleur de lis emblematic in the secrets,SAM 0586 the apprentice Pillar, SAM 0599the wild Boar reflected in the Tree, Interior showing the Apprentice Pillar  the Templar Knights the inner sanctum sanctorum and not far away Temple Land who some say holds the secret of the inquisitive mind. The Templars were no doubt the first Bankers of the modern World assisting the weary traveller by depositing his Monet in his Home land and gaining a credit to be collected in another country thus he did not have to carry money or valuables on his person. And when he came Home he could cash in his credit. But there were many who wanted to control the Templars one King Philip 1V of France King Philip 1V of France who was deep in debit to the Templars and ordered a plot against them with Pope Clement V Pope Clement V and to try and confiscate their Riches and Secrets without success. The international Templar system worked From the Hugues de Paynes First Grand Master Hugues de Payens who along with our army of Templar's searched the Holy Land for the truth of our one true Son of our Great Architect of the Universe Jesus the Fisher of Men and his Great followers the  SAM 0593  Apostles who were Twelve in number and his most trusted one who could be the Keeper of the true dynasty some may say Blood line, Holy Grail, Ark of the Covenant only the one true of heart, only one who can be true to their faith and only one who’s charity knows no bounds, one may ask if the Knights found the truth and if not why do so many search for what every true Templar Knight keeps so close to their Heart.


So even to our last Jacques de molay Grand Master of the old age Templar Jacques de Molay 1244 - 18th March 1314 now recognised as Black Friday. In who's trust the Modern Templar's who escaped to the Four corners of the Globe and in to-days enlightenment the Templars still work in there Mystic ways and hold within them the True Secrets and only passed to the next Templar to hold until that Time comes for them to be revealed.
