The rituals of the Ancients were based on the rituals of the English operative freemasons, which were similar to those of the operative freemasons in Scotland and Ireland who used the expression "perfect points of entrance" as a matter course.
The expression was already in use among the Ancients when the Earl of Blessington, who had ruled over the Grand Lodge of Ireland as Viscount Mountjoy in 1738 and 1739, was installed in proxy as Grand Master of the Ancients in 1756.
His appointment might have been expected to provide added impetus for "the perfect points of entrance" to be used in England, but for some reason those catechisms seem to have fallen into disuse by about 1760, possibly because the Grand Master was heavily engaged in the affairs of Ireland.
