Excerpt from Naval Accounts and Inventories of the Reign of Henry VII, 1485-8 and 1495-7

The earliest Of the Keepers known is William Of Wrotham, afterwards Archdeacon of Taunton, in the reign Of John. It is extremely improbable that the post was first instituted by John, although he may have enlarged the powers Of its holder and given him higher rank in the Official hierarchy. Although William Of Wrotham is the first Keeper Of whom we have knowledge, it is likely that he had pre decessors, and that their Office was a copy or a modification Of a similar one held by servants Of the Norman dukes even before the Conquest. That it was so Often a domestic Office, held by members Of the royal household, seems to point to an antiquity coeval with other posts connected with the person or possessions Of the monarch.
