Receiver George Plater at £ 20 and £ 12 respectively from the fines
and forfeitures. 46 However, in 1697 both were given salaries
out of the Treasury. Other Surveyors were now appointed, and
Collier was recommissioned Surveyor and Searcher at Oxford.
Their salaries in sterling, the entire income of their offices, were
as follows: 47

Surveyor and Searcher, Annapolis: £25 until April 12, 1703, when

raised to £ 60 a year.

Surveyor and Searcher, Oxford: £ 35 a year..

Riding Surveyor, Bohemia and Sassafras: £ 50 a year.

Riding Surveyor, Wicomico and Monie: £ 25 until April 18, 1709, when

raised to £ 40 a year.

Riding Surveyor, Pocomoke: £ 60 a year.

Each of the four Comptrollers had a salary of £ 50 sterling
except the Comptroller of Chester who, because he had so little
business, received only £ 40 a year. 47 Their fees were a third those
of any Collector for the same service. 48 We have no contemporary
estimate of their net incomes.

48 They were so established by 5 George III, c. 45 (1765), continued by 10
George HI, e. 37 (1770).
