This index is not intended to be a biographical index. Its purpose is confined to providing summarized accounts of the office or offices held by each individual serving in a paid position within the royal Household during the period. No information has been included which is not directly relevant to this purpose. Thus, dates of death are included only if the individual was in office at the time of his death. Appointments to office outside the Household have been ignored unless they occasioned, or can reasonably be held to have occasioned, the departure of the official from the Household. Thus, because chaplains in waiting departed office upon promotion to bishoprics and, after 1727, deanships, dates of nomination, consecration or, in their absence, other relevant dates of appointment to these dignities have been provided.

The name of each individual is followed by their Household office(s), the date of their appointment and the reason and date of their departure from office. The sources for this information are given in parentheses. Where periods of service in two or more offices overlapped, subsequent appointments are indented following two dashes (--).
