What were the Knights of the Golden Fleece, the Purple Society, Porcuses, Columbarians and the Brothers of the Wacut?

Answer: British societies in 1748. The Georgian era saw an explosion of private clubs and groups, most based on common hobbies or political beliefs. The reasons for the establishment of these particular five clubs however, remain largely a mystery.
