In the mid 1940’s, the members of Garston Lodge No. 5644, many of whom were shopkeepers, decided to form a new Lodge which met on a Wednesday, which was, at that time the early closing day. Over half of the nineteen Founder Members were engaged in the retail trade as were most of the joining Members and the Initiates in the early years.
The new Lodge took its name from the Hamlet of Leavesden which abutted Garston. It quickly developed an enthusiastic Lodge of Instruction whose Members came, not only from Watford Lodges, but also from those in London and Middlesex. In one year, it had Masters from no less than five Lodges attending regularly.
The significance of the Crest with its Hart and three Laurel Wreaths is not now known.
