Mundy's Name & Famous Masons

History The Mundys Name

From the early 16th century the Mundys have been a prominent and influential Derbyshire family. Sir John Mundy (d.1538) was Lord Mayor of London in 1522. In l5l6 he purchased, from Lord Audley, the estates of Markeaton, Mackworth and Allestree, and was responsible for building Markeaton Hall (c1519). Wrighton Mundy (1715-1762) had the house rebuilt in 1755, his son Francis Noel Mundy (1739-1815) was a pivotal figure in the development of Derby's intellectual revolution of the late l8th century.

Edward Miller Mundy, of Shipley Hall, was Derbyshire M.P. from 1784-1822. His family was a junior (but more numerous and opulent) branch of the Mundys of Markeaton Hall. It was from this part of the family that Mundy Grove Lodge was named. Shipley Hall was built in 1700 and enlarged in 1799, but has since been demolished. Mundy Grove held their first seven meetings by Dispensation at Shipley Boat, until a warrant was granted by Grand Lodge.

Although the Lodge was named after the Mundys, the Coat of Arms of the banner is derived from two other families. By its early connection with Bro. C.R.Colvile (Dep.P.G.M. 1942-64) the Lodge was permitted to adopt his Arms and that of the Russell family (acquired through marriage).

St. John the Evangelist is recognised as being the Patron Saint of Mundy Grove Lodge. His Annual Festival is celebrated by the Christian Church on 27th December each year. (date of the Lodge Warrant).
