Assistant Junior Clerks 1824-57
The grade of Assistant Junior, or Fourth Class, Clerk was created in 1824 when
provision was made for three such Clerks with salaries of £100 rising by annual
increments of £10 to £150. (fn. 1) The number was increased to four in 1826 and to eight
in 1827; reduced to six in 1830 and to four in 1839; and again increased to six in 1852
and to seven in 1856. (fn. 2) In 1826, 1839 and 1854 additional appointments were made to
the grade before formal approval was given to increases in the size of the establishment. Although technically supernumeraries, Clerks so appointed have been classed
as established from the dates of their appointment by the Secretary of State. In 1857
the Assistant Junior Clerks then in office were distributed amongst the two newly
created grades of Second Class Junior Clerk and Third Class Junior Clerk.
