(fn. 1) The change in title was effected by Admiralty warrant, and a salary of £400 was attached to the office. (fn. 2) The office was discontinued in 1812 on the abolition of the office of Civil Architect, when it was provided that Goodrick should have preference over others of his profession whenever his services were wanted.
