Treasurer of the Navy

A notable office in British government between the 16th and early 19th centuries, the Treasurer of the Navy was responsible for the financial maintenance of the Royal Navy. The office was a political appointment, and frequently was held by up and coming young politicians who would later go on to hold more important positions. The post was abolished in 1836.
