The management of the Ticket Office was taken out of the hands of the Controller in December 1668, when Brouncker, the Controller of Treasurer's Accounts, was ordered to take over the work (Adm. 2/1746 f. 22). He resigned in December 1672 because the business of the Office was becoming too onerous to combine with his other duties, and was replaced by an Extra Commissioner, Seymour (Adm. 2/1735 f. 75).
