History of the Hebrew Manuscript on the Origin of Freemasonry
It was generally believed that modern Freemasonry was created in 1717 when its Grand Lodge of England was established. It was also generally believed that it was Dr. James Anderson who wrote its "New Constitutions." (See, for instance, Paul A. Fisher, Behind the Lodge Door, Shield Publishing, Inc., P.O.Box 90181, Washington D.C.20090, p. 24). It is true that the new name was adopted in 1717, but the real founder of Freemasonry is not Anderson. Moreover, few people, including most of its members, know that its origin is 2000 years old. Indeed, as far as we know, none of the current books on Freemasonry traces Freemasonry to its true origin. Masonry was founded by King Herod Agrippa at the suggestion of Hiram Abiud, with the consent of Moab Levy, Adoniram, Johanan, Jacob Abdon, Antipas, Solomon Aberon, and Ashad Abia in the year 43. The original name was the "Mysterious Force." All its founders belonged to Judaism. In this article, we are going to present a true history based on the priceless manuscript written in Hebrew containing minutes of the meetings of the original founders of Masonry.
The following sections on Masonry are based on the English translation of the original manuscript written in Hebrew of the History of Masonry. The History was transmitted from the nine founders only to the direct descendants of these founders. One of the original Hebrew copies was passed from Moab Levy, a founder, to Joseph Levy in 17th century. However, Joseph Levy's copy was robbed by Desaguliers, the founder of modern Masonry, after Levy was assassinated by Desaguliers. Joseph's son Abraham Levy died of tuberculosis two years after his marriage to Esther. Esther remarried to Abraham Abiud who was a direct descendant of Hiram Abiud, the real founder of the ancient Masonic Association. Abraham Abiud possessed another copy of the original manuscript. Their only female child, also named Esther, was married to Samuel Lawrence. Their son Jonas Lawrence had a son Samuel by his first wife but later married Janet a Christian Protestant and converted to Christianity. This only manuscript was passed on to Jonas who expressed his desire to publish it. But Jonas was assassinated for his conversion to Christianity and his illegal possession of the History because he was not a direct descendant of the Levy line. Jonas's will could not be carried out until his great grandson, Lawrence G. S. Lawrence born 1868, who was a Protestant, translated the History from Hebrew into English. In this translation, Mr. Lawrence -- the last Descendant of the owner of the history (the Hebrew manuscript) -- adopted the title: The Dissipation of the Darkness, the Origin of Masonry. In the following sections, we will quote extensively from the English translation of the Hebrew manuscript and the pages that contain the quotes refer to this document.

It is general believed to have started in 1717?
Right there you've lost your point. 1717 was the gathering of 4 lodges to form a Grand Lodge. Obviously, those 4 lodges existed prior to 1717. Additionally, it was only 4 lodges, not all lodges in England at the time.
Now, look up Kilwinning which predates the 1717 meeting by many years.
