Assistant Controller 1682-91

This office, to which appointments were made by Admiralty warrant, was created in 1682 for Thomas Hayter on his removal from the Controllership. A salary of £400 was secured to Hayter by letters of privy seal. His duties closely resembled those performed by the Controller of Treasurer's Accounts before the abolition of that office in 1679. (fn. 1) Hayter was appointed Assistant to the Commissioners for Old Accounts in 1686, and the Assistant Controllership was discontinued. It was revived in 1689 with a salary of £300, (fn. 2) but discontinued in 1691 on the revival of the office of Controller of Treasurer's Accounts.
