History

The office of the Tip staff is though] to have been created in the 14th century. One of the earliest records of the Tipstaff was mentioned in 1570: “The Knight Marshall with all hys tippe staues”. It is a position of both law enforcement and ceremonial duties.

An earlier mention of tip staff is in 1555 when the Rev’d Dr Rowland Taylor was burned at the stake during the reign of Queen Mary 1 for his religious views that were contrary to those of the Archibshops of Canterbury Cranmer and Lord Chancellor Gardner. In Foxes book of Martyes it states that Dr Taylor would have spoken to the people but as soon as he opened his mouth the yeoman of the guard thrust a tipstaff into his mouth, and would in no wise permit him to speak. This is also quoted in the book Five English Reformers by j c ryle

The name originates from the early law enforcement officers who would apprehend a person intended for arrest by enforcing their duty, if necessary, with a tipped staff or stave. The staff was made of wood or metal or both, topped with a crown. The crown, which unscrewed, was removed to reveal a warrant of arrest inside the hollow staff. Some staffs were definitely a means of protection and this is where the present day policeman’s baton originates

In June 1919, Grand Lodge held an especial meeting at the Royal Albert Hall to

celebrate peace to the world after the Great War. The Grand Master, The Duke of

Connaught expressed a wish that a memorial be erected as a fitting honour to the

many brethren who made the supreme sacrifice during the four years of hostilities.

Such a memorial would be a new central home to accommodate the continued growth

of Freemasonry to be erected “in this Metropolis of the Empire dedicated to the Most

High and worthy of the great traditions of the United Grand Lodge of England…”

The Masonic Million Memorial Fund was then launched, and all brethren in the

English Constitution were encouraged to contribute the one million pounds necessary

to build and furnish the new ‘Masonic Peace Memorial’ in Great Queen Street, which

was eventually opened 14 years later in 1933. Contributions from brethren and lodges

at home and overseas were to be recognised by the presentation of a commemorative

jewel, to be called the Hall Stone Jewel. Bro. Cyril Spackman won a competition for

its design. The jewel is in the form of a cross, symbolising sacrifice and on the sides

are inscribed the dates 1914 – 1918, four years in which that sacrifice was made. In

the centre, is a winged figure representing peace, supporting a Temple. The medal is

suspended by the square and compasses: two of the great emblematical lights in

Freemasonry.
