Gentlemen Pensioners (Gentlemen at Arms) 16601837

The principal officers of the band of gentlemen pensioners, whose title was changed to that of gentlemen at arms in 1834, were the captain, lieutenant, standard bearer and clerk of the cheque, all appointed by royal warrant. (fn. 1) Their salaries were 1,000, 500, 310 and 120 respectively. The captain carried a gold or gold-tipped staff, the lieutenant and standard bearer black staffs with silver heads. (fn. 2)

The paymaster was appointed by the Crown by letters patent under the great seal. Sir Lewis Kirke was appointed for life. (fn. 3) His successor, John Kirke, was originally appointed during pleasure in 1664 but subsequently received a grant for life in 1676 together with a reversion to his son John who did not live to succeed. (fn. 4) All subsequent appointments were during pleasure. The office was granted in survivorship in 1718 and 1728. (fn. 5)

The gentleman harbinger of the gentleman pensioners was appointed and sworn in by the captain. (fn. 6) His salary was 70 per annum. (fn. 7)

The band of gentleman pensioners stood guard with their axes in the presence chamber. They also attended the monarch from that room to the chapel royal on Sundays and Collar Days; to the House of Lords and St. Paul's on ceremonial occasions; and at drawing rooms. Twenty were supposed to be in waiting by quarter, the whole band giving its attendance at Christmas, Easter and other festivals. (fn. 8) By 1735, the Duke of Montagu, captain of the band, 'observed this material part of their Duty of daily attendance in the Presence Chamber has been of late years neglected.' He attempted to restore it, but dispensed with the special attendance at Christmas. By the time of George IV, attendance was again neglected, leading to reform (and a new name) under his successor. (fn. 9)

The size of the band was reduced from 50 to 40 in March 1671, the remaining ten officers being reduced to half-pay and the right to succeed to subsequent vacancies. (fn. 10) During the later Stuart period there was some controversy as to whether the King or the captain had the right of appointment; however, the latter seems to have been the usual appointing officer in practice. From 1689, that right was explicitly and finally vested in the captain, but appointees were subject to royal approval. Thus gentlemen were usually appointed by the captain and sworn in by the clerk of the cheque. Their salary was 100 per annum apiece. (fn. 11)
