The Web browsing public need to be aware that some Sites under the St John name sell "Knighthoods" or other such "honours".

(D) a resource for details on Chivalry in general.

PLEASE NOTE: This website has no connection whatsoever with any present day Templar Order, either presently or in the past. Also this website has no connection with Freemasonry, event though some links on the Templar pages are to Masonic organisations. This is provided as a means of information only.
