On 9 September 1902, Frank's brother, Samuel Hall Humphry (who had succeeded his father as the licensee of the Britannia Hotel) was installed as Worshipful Master of New Forest Lodge No 319 at Lymington. The installing master was John William Boggeln, a police inspector, the brother of Frank's future wife's then husband. The two worshipful brethren had been initiated together on 11 May 1897 and had progressed very rapidly together through the offices of the lodge.
Frank was initiated into New Forest Lodge on 23 July 1903, aged 26, when his brother was in the chair of King Solomon. He was passed to the Second Degree on 11 April 1905 and raised to the degree of a Master Mason on 13 June 1905.
