Prince Hall Masonary was established in Barbados with the chartering of Prince Hall Memorial Lodge #100 on July 31, 1965 when G Halley Marville was installed as Worshipful Master by Most Worshipful E. Harrison, Grand Master of the Most Worshipful Prince Hall Grand Lodge of the state of New York and Hurisdiction.
the following lodges were subsequently chartered:
Mount Ayangana Lodge #103
Adrian C Richardson Lodge #104
Mount Hermon Lodge #105
King David Lodge #106
Tamrin Lodge #113
Perseverance Lodge #116
Daniel O Brathwaite Lodge # 118
Celestial Lodge #119
the seeds of self rule were sown on Friday, June 7, 1975 at Room 620, New York Sheraton Hotel, where discussion was initiated on the formation of a Caribbean Grand Lodge.
Consequently, a conference was subsequently convened in Georgetown, Guyana. The lodges represented were: Prince Hall Memorial Lodge #100, Mount Ayangana Lodge #103, Adrian C Richardson Lodge #104, Mount Hermon Lodge #105, and King David Lodge #106. The conference was adjourned until April 18 - 19, 1976. the following up meeting was not convened and the matter remained dormant for the next five years.
In 1980, WM Frederick Walcott (106) in an effort to revive interest in the Caribbean Grand Lodge appointed a joint committee on Statutes and Constitution under the chairmanship of the Honourable Bro. Errol Walton Barrow, with brothers Lionel Greenidge and C Carlton Browne as members. From their draft document the constitutional work was started.
Another conference was convened in St. Lucia on November 29, 1980 to continue discussions. Tamrin Lodge #113 joined the five lodges who attended the meeting in 1975. At a subsequent meeting convened on March 6, 1981 in Georgetown, a resolution was approved on the formation of a Caribbean Grand Lodge.
WM Orville Carter (106), during his tenure of office, 1981 - 1982, as chairman of a steering committee convened meetings in Barbados and guyana. A draft charter was prepared by a Committee on Charters, chaired by Bro, C Carlton Browne. The draft was circulated to all lodges.
The activities on the formation of a Caribbean Grand Lodge were again discontinued for the next nine years until a conference was convened under the chairmanship of WM Michael Brathwaite (100) on December 14 - 15, 1991 in Barbados. A declaration was then signed supporting the formation of a Grand lodge by representatives of lodges Number 100, 103, 104, 106, 118. this was followed by another conference in St Maarten on September 25 - 26, 1992 where an interim administration under the chairmanship of Past Master Desmond Whitehall (106) was mandated to make all necessary arrangement for the inauguration of a Caribbean Grand Lodge. Finally after many years of trials, the Most Worshipful Prince Hall Grand Lodge of the Caribbean and Jurisdiction was inaugurated on April 24, 1993.
