Lodge Thistle 127 was granted its Charter on 20th May 1771 and much of its history has been understandably lost, or has never been recorded.
In 1993, following extensive research, Bro. Archibald Chalmers, P.M. published a document entitled 'Historical Notes on Lodge Thistle No. 127 (Stewarton)'. The information in this section is taken from that document and reproduced with the kind permission of Bro. Archibald.

Bro. John Paton, snr, is known to have served as R.W.M. for at least 15 years, but I can only trace the dates of 5 of them.
Bro. Alexander Boyle, P.M., was Master either durng 1876 or 1877 or both these years.
Bro. John Smith, P.M., was Master prior to Bro. James Gillies in 1857, but I cannot be specific on a year or number of years.
