Assistant Clerks 1805-56

Although the term 'Assistant Clerk' was occasionally used before 1805 to describe those junior Clerks who were associated with the Senior Clerks in the business of the divisions, it was not until the general reorganisation of that year that it was adopted specifically as the title of a grade in the clerical structure. Provision was then made for nine Assistant Clerks. (fn. 1) The number was raised to eleven in 1808 and to thirteen in 1834. (fn. 2) Apart from certain temporary variations it remained fixed at this level until 1856 when the grade was abolished. (fn. 3)

The salary scale attached to the grade in 1805 began at £300, rising after seven years to £350, after ten years to £400 and after fifteen years to £500. (fn. 4) In 1813 the scale was improved and the maximum salary was raised to £700 after twenty years. In 1821 it was fixed at £300 rising by annual increments of £20 to £500. (fn. 5)
