What does "F" mean?

The letter "F" means Free, which originated in England during the Middle Ages.

Ancient craftsmen were very skilled, and their craft was considered indispensible to the welfare of both the Church and State.  For this reason, they were not placed under the same restrictions as were other workers - they were "free" to do their work, travel and live with their lives in a manner befitting their importance.  In England during the Middle Ages this freedom was rare.  Our legendary history carries this freedom from the "Operative Mason" back to the year 946, in York, England.

What does "A. M." Mean?

The letters "A. M." mean Accepted Mason, which originated in England during the Middle Ages.

During the latter years of the Middle Ages, there were a few educated men outside the monasteries of the world.  Naturally, men wanted to become Freemasons to obtain the advantages the craft had to offer.  Not all wanted to build buildings however; they just wanted to belong to the organization. These were "Accepted" Masons rather than "operative" Masons.  As time went on, there became many more "Accepted" members as building trades became widely known.
