From Ms. rituals it would appear that the lodge officers were the Master, two Wardens, Chaplain and Inside and Outside Tylers. There were three degrees: Apprentice (based on Adam in the Garden of Eden), Journeyman (based on Noah's Ark) and Master Gardener (based on King Solomon).
Whilst the Order started in Scotland, spreading to England much later, the sash above is believed to be that of the British Order of Ancient Free Gardeners.
