"The Masonic Empire of Thomas Dunckerley: England to Quebec and the Broad Oceans In-between" - Dr. Susan Mitchell Sommers

May 2015

“Thomas Dunckerley is a late eighteenth-century icon of British Freemasonry; his story is a fascinating morality tale of self-invention and self-deception. Climbing to the highest echelons of the order, and long-accepted as something of a hero, the reality of Dunckerley’s life is very different from the version recorded by his nineteenth-century biographers. Sommers reveals Dunckerley’s widely accepted claim to be an illegitimate son of George II to be untrue. But alongside a very real success as a Freemason, his true story includes the Royal Navy, travel, a career in law and the ‘scandalous Worsley affair’".
