Massachusetts Catholic Order of Foresters Courts Instituted From 1879 To 1935

All Courts instituted before 1894 had an all-male membership. In 1894, women were admitted to the MCOF. Women formed all-female Courts and also joined formerly all-male Courts. The composition of some early Courts changed from all-male to a mixed gender membership. This Court list reflects Court composition from 1930-1935.
Irish surnames were predominant in membership lists well into the 1930s. Courts with a predominantly German membership are noted. Addresses for Courts are where the Court meetings were held, often a rented space.
If a Court was disbanded before 1930, an earlier address is given.
Some Courts changed names. Additional Court names are given in parenthesis.
