I have read several conflicting reports about the famed founder of PHA Masonry. Some acounts place his birth in the Bahamas, while others in New England. This is just one example of contradictory details to a facinating story. Does anyone know more about Prince Hall?

It was my understanding that he was born in England, but I don't remember for sure.

Is the mans first name PRINCE? or was he actually a Prince with his name being Hall?

His first name was Prince, his last name was Hall. He is the first known black Mason, having received his degrees at a military Lodge in England in the 18th century. He helped charter several all-black Lodges, which modern regular Prince Hall Affiliation Masons are descended.

It would be well for us to truly recognize that we are a Brotherhood of Men. It has taken many years for most Grand Lodges to Regularly recognize PH. I pray that it is fully rectified at some point in the future. Old prejudices die hard.
