Loge La France was consecrated in 1884. After the break with the Grand Orient of France in 1878, French Masons living in England found themselves in a difficult position and they petitioned the Grand Lodge of England to form a new Lodge in London. The Warrant for this new Lodge - Loge La France No.2060 - was signed by the Prince of Wales, the Grand Master, who was to become King Edward VII. A translation by Bro. Henri Bué of the English Ritual was presented and the work of the Lodge to this day is carried out in French.
