Gentlemen Ushers Quarter Waiters 1660–1837

The gentlemen ushers quarter waiters (or, later in the period, quarterly waiters), who were eight in number, waited in the presence chamber, giving directions to the servants of the public rooms when the daily waiter was absent. They were appointed by lord chamberlain's warrant. (fn. 1) Their remuneration amounted to £50, consisting of wages of £10 and board wages of £40. In addition, early in the period they were entitled to lodgings when in attendance, riding wages, and fees of honour worth about £30 under Anne. (fn. 2) Extra gentlemen ushers were appointed in 1718 and 1719.
