Administrative history

London, Ontario’s Hackett Loyal Orange Lodge #805 originated in Goderich, Ontario. Founded January 12, 1857, Goderich Loyal Orange Lodge #805 was transferred to London East in May, 1878. The lodge charter was received, and the first meeting held, on May 23 of that year. The lodge was named after Thomas Lett Hackett, a young Orangeman murdered during the annual July 12 celebrations in Montreal in 1877. The inaugural officers of Hackett Lodge were: Bro. John Day – Worshipful Master Bro. Evans – Deputy Master Bro. James Burns – Secretary Bro. Lavery – Treasurer Hackett Loyal Orange Lodge #805 began as a benefit lodge; members were offered health insurance and funeral benefits for additional fees. The lodge changed to a regular Orange Lodge in December, 1934. Early meetings were held at 402 ½ Richmond Street. Meetings were then held at the London East Hall (on Adelaide Street north of St. James Street) until 1914, when the membership moved to the Orange Hall above the Ontario Loan and Debenture Company (the corner of Dundas Street and Market Lane.) In 1924, meetings were moved to the Ulster Hall above the City Gas Company at the corner of Dundas and Clarence Streets, and in 1928 the Lodge moved to 388 Clarence Street. Hackett Lodge founded a fife and drum band in 1915, and a brass band was established in 1922. Hackett Lodge is one of the few London area lodges that is still in operation today.
