Junior Clerks 1822-57

The grade of Junior, or Third Class, Clerk was created in 1822 when provision was made for five such Clerks with salaries of £150 rising by annual increments of £15 to £300. (fn. 1) The number was increased to six in 1824 and to seven in 1825; reduced to six in 1827; and again increased to seven in 1839, to ten in 1854 and to twelve in 1856. (fn. 2) In 1857 the Junior Clerks then in office were distributed amongst the two newly created grades of First Class Junior Clerk and Second Class Junior Clerk.
