Barbers 1660–?1837

The barbers were appointed by the groom of the stole, who wrote to the lord chamberlain for a warrant for swearing in to the gentlemen ushers daily waiters. (fn. 1) Under Charles II, two barbers to the person made £200 in wages, £141 in fees and £46 16s 4d in livery apiece. Under James II three barbers received £200 apiece from the cofferer. From 1689 each barber received £170 from the treasurer of the Chamber, £200 from the cofferer and £46 16s 4d in livery money). The position lapsed under Queen Anne but was revived in a single holder by the Hanoverians. The above total of £370 remained the remuneration until at least 1784. (fn. 2)
