Dates of existence



A meeting was held May 11, 1898 to establish the Roseville Cross and Crown Circle of King's Daughters. The Circle was a Christian spiritual and service organization affliated with the Roseville Church in the Rural Municipality of Daly, Manitoba. The new organization's executive was Mrs. Varcoe (Leader), Mrs. Frank Caporn (Treasurer) and Mrs. Fred Caporn (Secretary). The motto of the Roseville Circle was " Be Thou faithful until death and I will give thee a crown of life." The organization raised money to support the Roseville Church and other charitable organizations. The Roseville Cross and Crown Circle of King's Daughters existed until at least 1910

The Circle of King's Daughters was founded by Margaret McDonald Bottome in 1886 in New York City, New York, USA when Mrs. Bottome and nine other women organized themselves into a permanent study group for self-improvement and Christian service to others, taking the name King’s Daughters. Each of the ten women organized another group of ten women, as did those women, and so on. The basis for this pattern of a circle of ten women stemmed from Edward Everett Hale’s novel Ten Times One Is Ten. When men were admitted to the organization in 1887 it became known as the Order of King's Daughters and Sons. By 1907 the order had half a million followers in the United States and Canada and was known as the International Order of King's Daughters and Sons.
