Middlesex First Principals Chapter, No. 3420, was consecrated in 1973 under attachment to Middlesex Masters Lodge, No. 3420. It is one of two Royal Arch Chapter for First Principals within the Provincial Grand Chapter of Middlesex, the head of which is the Most Excellent Grand Superintendent, Excellent Companion Peter R A Baker, who is also the Pro Provincial Grand Master of the Craft Province. For Middlesex Royal Arch Masons, the Chapter serves a similar purpose to that of the Middlesex Masters Lodges, offering members the opportunity to broaden their Masonic knowledge and activity at the same time widening their circle of friends in the ‘Middlesex Family’. All new members can be assured of a warm and friendly welcome.

Prospective members must be an Installed First Principal of or in a Middlesex Chapter, in good standing and a subscribing member of that Chapter.

The Chapter meets twice a year, usually at Twickenham District Masonic Centre, the regular meeting dates being the Fourth Monday in March and November. Installation is at the November meeting which is normally conducted by the M.E.Grand Superintendent assisted by members of the Provincial Royal Arch Executive.

For the past few years the Chapter has been honored to host the annual ‘Gordon Bourne Lecture’ on a subject of interest to Royal Arch Masons, and is held at the March meeting.

The current fees are £10 for joining and an annual subscription of £25, exclusive of dining.

Prospective joining members need to be proposed and seconded by existing members who need not be members of the applicant’s own Chapter. If necessary, the Royal Arch Visiting Officer for the applicant’s Chapter should be able to assist in arranging contact with suitable Companions.
