Featuring Worshipful Brother Gerald


John Coustos


Share this video John Coustos was born in 1703 in Berne, Switzerland. In 1743, Coustos became the Founding Worshipful Master of a Masonic Lodge in Lisbon, and shortly thereafter, was seized by the Spanish Inquisition. He was tortured nine times, yet still refused to disclose the secrets of the craft. Three fellow lodge members were hanged while Coustos was sentenced to four years imprisonment. One year into his sentence, King George II, demanded Coustos release. Upon his return, he wrote an account of his capture entitled The Sufferings of John Coustos which was posthumously published in 1756. Brother John Coustos died in 1746.

© 2017 The Ashlar Company “Hello!

I wanted to take a moment to thank you both for the rapid shipping and delivery of my order, but also for the high quality product.... then symbols pen I purchased for my boss was exquisite and the craftsmanship was very impressive.

When I presented the pen to my boss this morning - his eyes lit up like a little boy, and no sooner than he was able to say thank you to me, he was dashing around the office showing the pen off to his lodge brothers who also work at our company.

Thank you again for the wonderful product and quick shipping! ” Mrs Katrina, Dallas, PA
