Mark Masonry develops the theme of the Fellowcraft Freemason.
Mark Masonry was originally practiced as part of "Antients" Craft Freemasonry in England within the structure of the Craft Lodge. At the Union of the two Grand Lodges in 1813, the Mark degree was not recognised and did not form part of the re-organisation. In 1856 an attempt was made to re-introduce it, but when this failed a separate Mark Grand Lodge was created.
Mark Masonry consists of two degrees - Mark Man and Mark Master Mason. Both are carried out in the one ceremony. Although it must be said that the Mark degree as practiced under other jurisdictions does differ somewhat from the English ceremony.
In some Grand Lodges, the Mark degree is a pre-requisite for the Holy Royal Arch, and is worked in the Craft Lodge or the Royal Arch Chapter.
The structure of Mark Masonry is similar to the Craft in that under the Grand Lodge are Provincial Grand Lodges.
The Provincial Grand Lodge of the Channel Islands meets in Jersey and Guernsey and has members from all the islands.
