Hallo! Me again: SALLY DAVIS, biographer of Henry George Norris, now working on something very different.
As of February 2019, I’ve been working on biographies of the GD members for several years now and I think it’s time to take a break. So, for an as-yet-undetermined period of time, I shan’t be adding any new biographies to those in the list below. I might update some that already exist if I find a cache of new information.
Below is a list of all the people
who were initiated into the Order of the Golden Dawn at its temples in
The list of names is based on the data R A Gilbert put in his book The Golden Dawn Companion, published by The Aquarian Press in 1986. Gilbert had inherited the Golden Dawn’s Membership Roll and he transcribed all the signatures written on it, for his book. I used the book and the original Members’ Roll, to make my list; correcting some wrong spellings and adding in one person who was on the Members’ Roll but not in the book - I guess Gilbert must just have overlooked her, amongst so many names.
For the last few years I’ve been working on biographies of the
Golden Dawn members in the list below, using the web and libraries in
Two important points about what I’ve been doing:
1) Those of you who want to find out about the Golden Dawn’s magic: these biographies are not for you. I’m no magician and I’ve concentrated on the members’ other lives - their day job, if you like - birth, family/relationships, work/income, death.
2) Some of the people on the list have had biographies done already. There are books on:
Sir William Crookes
Aleister Crowley; a lot of books on him, of course
Florence Farr with coverage of her sister Henrietta Paget and her brother-in-law Henry Marriott Paget
Maud Gonne, including some coverage of her sister Kathleen Pilcher and her cousin Mary Kimble Gonne
Mary Eliza Haweis
Annie Horniman though these tend to concentrate on her later career as a theatrical impresario
Samuel Liddell Mathers including coverage of his wife Mina (later Moina) née Bergson
W B Yeats including some coverage of his uncle George Pollexfen.
And there’s also a book in preparation on William George Lemon.
The books aren't always easy to find but it still seemed superfluous for me to do any more work on those people.
As at January 2017 there are also wikipedia pages on some of the people I’ve already mentioned, and:
Henry Edward Colvile though there's not much on his second wife Zelie née de Préville
Robert William Felkin though without much on his wife Mary née Mander or his sister-in-law Jemima Mander
Henry Pullen-Burry though without much on his wife Rose née Anwyl. I have done a life-by-dates of Henry and Rose.
and William Wynn Westcott.
If you’re in a desperate hurry to find out more about anyone on the list, but without a biography as yet, you can email me; I may be able to help:
R A Gilbert’s papers, including the Members’ Roll, are now in
the archives at the
For anyone wishing to explore the membership or development of the Golden Dawn, archives relating to the Order and its successor bodies are available at the Library and Museum of Freemasonry - all resources have been catalogued with full descriptions for each document [reference: GBR 1991 GD] - see details for these records on the on-line catalogue at: http://www.freemasonry.london.museum/catalogue.php
The list below with dates of birth, marriages and dates of death where I’ve been able to find them out. The births, marriages and deaths were determined by correlating the relevant UK Government Census returns with the usual family history sources - FreeBMD, FamilySearch etc. Clerical appointments are taken from Crockford's Clerical Directory.
