"The Masonic Province of Hampshire came into being on February 28th 1767 with the appointment of the man who must surely be the most famous Provincial Grand Master of them all, Thomas Dunckerley. An enterprising and resourceful fellow from his earliest days, he ran away to sea at the age of ten. He saw twenty-six years service in the Royal Navy, and took part in the siege of Quebec in 1759. He left the Royal Navy at the age of 39 in 1763 to become a barrister and was later commissioned into the South Hampshire Militia. Reputed to be the natural son of George II, Dunckerley was eventually granted an allowance from the Privy Purse. This enabled him to devote himself to his great passion in life, Freemasonry. He had been initiated into the Three Tuns Lodge No. 35 (later known as the Lodge of Antiquity No. 28) in Portsmouth at the age of 29 and it was to be only fourteen years later the Grand Master appointed him as the first Provincial Grand Master for the Province of Hampshire." - Hants Grand Lodge website.
