The Wilson-Iles Lodge No. 2054 at The Four Swan's Hotel, Waltham Cross under the authority of a warrant dated 22nd May 1884. The Lodge had the honour of bearing the name of Dr. Francis Henry Wilson-Iles, Deputy Provincial Grand Master in 1889. The Latin inscription on the Crest adopted by the Lodge, 'Vi et Virtute', is translated to read as 'Life and Honour' and also as 'By Strength and Valour'.
In 1886 the Lodge looked to move to the Watford area and prior to 1920 moved between several venues in Watford, Bushey and Rickmansworth. In 1920 plans were made to construct Halsey Masonic Hall in Watford and the Lodge moved into the present building when it was completed in 1926. With the advent of war in 1939, the ground floor of Halsey Hall was requisitioned by the army for military purposes. Dining, therefore, had to take place in the smaller of the two temples on the first floor.
