Adelaide Lodge of Oddfellows

From Historical Hastings

The Adelaide Lodge of Oddfellows was a philanthropic society which met at the Warrior's Gate Inn. T. B. Brett was the secretary of this branch of the society in 1848 , and the president Mr. Peter Pagden (of the White Rock Brewery), the Lodge being founded in 1839[1]

In 1928, irregularities were discovered in the accounts of the society. These were due to theft by the forgery of cheques to the value of £53 8s. 6d. by the Secretary of the society - Douglas Griffiths. He was sentenced to twelve months imprisonment with hard labour at the Sussex Assizes during December of the same year[2].
