CHAPTER XII.

LIST OF OFFICIALS.

IN this section of the work it is intended to give as complete a catalogue as possible of the names of those persons who successively held the more important public offices in the Lordship of Glamorgan and in the Hundred, the Borough, the Parish and the Port of Cardiff. The Lists begin with the Mayors of Cardiff Burgh, who were also Constables of Cardiff Castle down to the middle of the 16th century. It will be remembered (fn. 1) that, some considerable time subsequent to the Royal grant of the Lordship of Cardiff Castle and its dependencies to the first Earl of Pembroke of the new line, an idea grew up that the Lord, instead of being himself the Constable of the Castle on behalf of the Sovereign, was entitled to appoint a Constable, who could appoint a Deputy. There can be little doubt that this view was erroneous. It was not, indeed, consistently maintained. We find, for instance, the Survey of 1666 (fn. 2) formally recording that the Lord is the Constable.

The earliest Mayor of Cardiff to be met with is one Ralph, who, in 1126 is described as Prepositus de Kardi, Prevost of Cardiff. The title of Constable is first met with circa 1148.

It will be well to mention here that there is a good deal of difficulty, in many cases, of distinguishing clearly between the various offices—for instance, between the prevostship or mayoralty of Cardiff Burgh, and the prevostship or shrievalty of the Comitatus of Glamorgan; both being sometimes held by officials styled "Prepositus de Kerdyf." Many titles were often united in one person, the most striking examples being Charles, Earl of Worcester, in 1516, and Sir William Herbert in 1549.

The ancient feudal mayoralty was superseded by the modern civil mayoralty in 1835, in consequence of the Municipal Reform Acts. Since that date the title of Constable of Cardiff Castle has not been used, but it may be presumed that the office survives in the person of the Marquess of Bute.

The Bailiffs of Cardiff Burgh (who were also Coroners and Escheators of the same) were of feudal institution and were the Lord's appointed officers to govern the Burgesses and collect his dues. They were, however, chosen by the citizens and in course of time acquired a large measure of independence of the Castle, chiefly through the acquisition of seignioral and royal charters. The Act of 1835 transferred their powers to the new Mayor, whom, moreover, it made independent of the Lord.

The Serjeants-At-Mace were anciently officers of high authority, and represented the executive. In the earliest known mention of them (1492) they are styled " Catchpoles of the Vill of Cardiff." It must be borne in mind that the antiquity of an office cannot be gauged by the date of its first appearance in existing records. The Serjeants are two in number, and were appointed by the Lord previous to 1835. The appointment was made annually until of late years. Since 1876 it has practically been a permanent one, and a regretable habit has arisen of calling these officers " Macebearers"—as though that were, legally as well as actually, their principal function. The Serjeants wear a uniform consisting of a long frock-coat with scarlet lappet and pewter buttons (the latter bearing the arms of the borough), a scarlet waistcoat, black trousers, top hat and white gloves.

The Recorder, Steward or Seneschal of the Borough was first appointed by the Charter of 1608. Unfortunately, the list of Recorders is far from complete. The Recorder must be "learned in the Laws of England"—in other words, a barrister. He presides over the Borough Quarter Sessions.

The Town Clerk is in practice, though not of necessity, always a Solicitor. The office is as ancient as any in the Borough; but it is not met with in the records earlier than 1623; and the list is consecutive only from 1690. Previous to the appointment of the present holder of this office, the Town Clerk was an attorney in private practice, who received a small fixed salary from the Corporation, and charged by Bill of Costs for his municipal work. The position carries with it that of Clerk of the Peace for the Borough, to which various minor posts are now added.

The Common Attorneys were annually appointed in pairs, their duty being to have charge of the municipal finances. The office was abolished in 1835, and the powers of these officials transferred partly to the Town Clerk and partly to the Borough Treasurer.

It has not been possible to trace the office of Water Bailiff further back than 1788, nor to carry the consecutive list of Water Bailiffs beyond the year 1818. It is, however, probable that such officers existed in ancient times. The Water Bailiff's duty is to maintain the fairway of the river Taff within the Borough, and to superintend the buoys and collect the Corporation's harbour-dues. The jurisdiction of the Water Bailiff has of late years been greatly curtailed by the various private Acts of Parliament procured by the Marquesses of Bute in connection with the Cardiff Docks. The Water Bailiff wears a kind of naval uniform, with brass-bound cap and jacket.

The Town Crier, though not mentioned in records of earlier date than 1772, holds what is certainly an ancient office. His bell and his stentorian voice have not been heard in Cardiff streets since about 1895, but he heads municipal processions carrying his black pole surmounted by the gilded acorn. His uniform consists of a long frock-coat trimmed with black braid, a scarlet waistcoat, black trousers, top hat, encircled by a gold band, and white gloves.

The office of Aletaster was of great antiquity, and his duty was to try the quality of all beer and ale brewed or sold within the

Borough. Only a few names of Aletasters have come down to us in the records, the latest known appointment being in 1828.

The Inspector of Weights and Measures was in old times called "Public Weighman." The earliest-known holder of the office was appointed in 1747, but the consecutive list goes back only to 1854. The present Inspector is partly under the control of the Board of Trade. He wears a uniform frock-coat, braided trousers and peaked cap.

The Customer and Collector of the Port of Cardiff is an officer of the Customs, appointed by the Brethren of Trinity House. For a long time past, however, the Corporation have regularly conferred upon the "Inspector of Customs" (as he is now usually styled) the post of Collector of Harbour Dues for the Borough. The earliest recorded name of a Customer is of the year 1567, and the list is fairly consecutive from 1686.

A Borough Treasurer was first appointed in 1836, and inherited the functions of the old Common Attorneys. He was at first called "Financial Clerk."

A Borough Surveyor was not appointed until 1860. The present holder of that office bears the title "Borough Engineer and Surveyor."

The earliest Medical Officer held that office in 1875. The present one, Dr. Edward Walford, is his successor. He is responsible for the health of the public and for the prevention of contagious and infectious disease within the Borough.

The present Police Superintendent is the fourth holder of this office and title. The first, appointed in 1839, succeeded the last of the old-fashioned Head Constables. The present Superintendent is often called the "Head Constable" or "Chief Constable." He wears a full-dress and an undress uniform, of a military pattern.

The remaining lists relate, for the most part, to long-obsolete offices, and call for no special remark in this place.
