Clerks of the Irish Revenue 1817-40

Following the consolidation of the English and Irish revenues in 1817 two Clerks were transferred from the Irish Treasury and attached to the Revenue Department. It was provided that they should not be confined to Irish business but should also assist in the general work of the office. The salary scale attached to the senior clerkship was £800 rising after five years to £900 and after ten years to £1000; that attached to the junior was £300 rising after every five years by £100 until it reached £1000. (fn. 1) On the resignation of the Clerks in question in 1830 and 1840 their offices were discontinued. (fn. 2)
