The Lodge takes its name from a local hamlet on the Stevenage to Hertford Road. The Proprietor of the local Inn, The Three Horse Shoes, an enthusiastic Mason, together with others locally unattached, made representations to form a new Lodge. Their petition was answered and the Hooks Cross Lodge was consecrated at The Cloisters, Letchworth.

The Lodge Crest, a Hart by a crossing of two streams, the River Beane, with its Motto ‘Esto Perpetua’­’Be Thou Eternal’, was readily accepted and approved.
