The Ticket and Wages Branch was established in 1829, when the Ticket Office was merged with the Office for Seamen's Wages where it became the Ticket and Wages Branch.[1] In 1832 following the abolition of the Navy Board all finance departments of the Navy Office transferred to the Department of the Accountant-General of the Navy

The office was first administered by the Chief Clerk, Ticket and Wages Branch.[1]

In 1829 the office was amalgamated with the Office for Seamen's Wages and the Ticket Office to create the Ticket and Wages Branch. [1] On the creation of the Ticket and Wages Branch in 1829, the Chief Clerks of the Ticket Office and of the Office for Seamen's Wages were appointed to the positions of Chief and Second Chief Clerk, placed respectively in the first and second sections of first class clerks.[1] In 1832 following the abolition of the Navy Board all finance departments of the Navy Office transferred to the Department of the Accountant-General of the Navy.
