Lieutenant of the Admiralty - British

Extant from : 1545

In 1546, when the Navy Board was formed, the Lieutenant of the Admiralty was appointed as its head, but this ceased in 1564 when the Treasurer of the Navy became the Head of the Board. The post was revived in 1604 when it appears to have been given as a mark of honourable distinction, with a salary of £100p.a., including two clerks and certain travelling expenses. In 1672 the post of Lieutenant of the Admiralty was merged into that of Vice-Admiral of England.
