The Public Rooms: Privy Chamber

Gentlemen Ushers of the Privy Chamber 1660–1837

The gentlemen ushers of the privy chamber,

have Power of commanding all Officers under them in the Privy Lodgings, (the Bed-Chamber excepted) and the Honour of leading the Queen in the Absence of the Lord Chamberlain. They likewise attend in the Closet at the Chapel, where no other Gentleman-Usher waits.

They were four in number, appointed by lord chamberlain's warrant. (fn. 1) Their remuneration amounted to £200 consisting of wages of £150 and board wages of £50. Early in the period, they were also entitled to diet and lodging when in attendance, riding wages and fees of honor which averaged about £30 per annum under Anne. (fn. 2) An extra gentleman usher was occasionally appointed.
