The Preceptory was consecrated at Nailsea on the 15th April 1957, the ceremony being performed by the  Very High and Great Seneshal, Sir Eric Studd, assisted by officers of Great Priory and of Provincial Priory.

There were a total of 16 founders and, following the consecration, the Provincial Prior, Very Eminent Knight G.Travers Biggs, installed the first Eminent Preceptor, E.Kt.K.J.Barrah. Another of the founders was E.Kt.H.L.Fuller who had been appointed to serve as Provincial Grand Master in the Mark Degree two years earlier.

The name of the Preceptory is derived, in part, from “Estune” the old Anglo-Saxon name for Long Ashton, as recorded in the Doomsday Book, and which means, “the tree in the Garden”. The name also acknowledges the existance of an ancient camp, Cadbury Camp, which was sited in the area and which, like all other camps, would have included a command post.

The banner, dedicated in the presence of the Right Eminent provincial Prior on the 28th September 1995, includes an illustration of a sword pointing downwards to an oak tree which, in turn, arises from a representation of the Doomsday Book bearing the date 1086.
