NEW LOCATIONS OF PREVIOUS WARRANT Nos. IN THE WORLD

During this time many from the area left to go to the New World in America and throughout the Empire, and were responsible for developing world trade and commerce.  Not only did they create communications within the British Empire, but they also helped to create and develop the United States of America. These pioneers also took Freemasonry with them and many Lodge Warrant Numbers were re-used when new lodges opened elsewhere in the world. Following is a list of warrant numbers which belonged to the lodges in Ballycastle and their history.
