11 Jan 1859
Establishment of a 2nd Class Clerk
Whereas by an Order in Council, bearing date the 13th of August, 1855, Your Majesty was graciously pleased to authorize the establishment and salaries of the Clerks employed in the Naval Victualling and Medical Establishments abroad; and whereas by that Order provision is made for one Clerk of the Second Class upon a salary commencing at £195 per annum at each of the Medical Establishments abroad except Bermuda, which Establishment was being re-modelled at the time, but now urgently requires the services of a Second Class Clerk on the same footing as those sanctioned in the other Foreign Medical Establishments by the Order in Council before-mentioned ; we beg leave most humbly to submit that Your Majesty will be graciously pleased to authorize the establishment of a Clerk of the Second Class at Bermuda Naval Hospital, upon a salary of £195 per annum, increasing annually by £15 to a maximum of £300 per annum, and that such arrangement should take effect from the 1st of October last. The Lords Commissioners of Your Majesty's Treasury have signified their concurrence with this measure.
Circa Jun 1816, it is reported that Commodore Lewis succeeds Commodore Evans in the Dockyard at Bermuda.
