Who is Alexander Deuchar?
Alexander Deuchar was a seal engraver and Lyon Herald at the Court of the Lord Lyon the authority for heraldry in Scotland and revived the Templar tradition in Scotland in the early 19th Century in order to establish a new form of chivalry. The Deuchar family had been Jacobite but transferred their allegiance to the Hanoverian cause before 1745, when a prominent Jacobite, Lyon of Easter Ogil carried off the great sword of Deuchar, but it was recovered after the Battle of Culloden in 1746, and in the possession of Alexander when he started his revival of the Scottish Knights Templar. The new Order started formally in 1805 when a charter was issued to by the Early Grand Encampment of Ireland, under the title of the Edinburgh Encampment No. 31. It became the Grand Assembly of Knights Templar in Edinburgh. His brother, David, who was serving in the 1st Regiment of Foot, The Royal Scots, joined with other officers of the Regiment.
