Auditor of the Receipt of the Exchequer

The Auditor of the Receipt of the Exchequer was an office in the English Exchequer.

The office originated in early times as the clerk of the Lord High Treasurer at the Receipt of the Exchequer. He was responsible for filing and entering the Teller's Bills from the Tellers of the Exchequer, certifying monies received to the Lord Treasurer, and auditing the books of the Tellers. The title of Auditor was officially attached to the post, combined with that of Tally Writer, during the reign of Elizabeth I. In 1826, the duties of the Chamberlains of the Exchequer devolved upon the Auditor. The office was abolished, with several other offices of the ancient Exchequer, on 10 October 1834.[1]
