Lodge St. John Maybole No. 11 is one of the oldest Masonic Lodges in Scotland, and its written records go back in time to the year 1725, but old documents show it to have been in existence in the year 1599. It was one of the 33 Lodges represented at the formation of the Grand Lodge.

The system of numbering the Lodges on the Roll of the Grand Lodge of Scotland seems to have been a bit haphazard. Maybole Lodge was originally numbered 14. This was changed, in 1817, to No. 10 and yet again in 1836 to No. 11 - its present number on the roll.

Strangely, the old Lodge of Maybole No. 14 was one of the sponsors of Lodge Glasgow Kilwinning who were given a place on the roll as No. 4.
