I don't think there is a difference. I think Mason is short for Free Mason and Masonry short for Free Masonry. If that isn't the case, I'm betting
that the Masons were the first of the two, some members had a problem with the group having too many rules and decided to create the FREE Masons.
Just my thoughts, I'm not really sure.
