Clerks of the Cheque to the Messengers 1660–1837

The clerks of the cheque to the messengers were appointed by the lord chamberlain. Originally, there were two such clerks of the cheque. One was eliminated on 14 Nov. 1782. (fn. 1) Circa 1695 they were paid £49 17s 6d per annum apiece plus fees for `chequeing'. After a scandal involving messengers' bills was uncovered in 1699, this was raised to £99 15s under Queen Anne. (fn. 2)
