EQUERRY, or Equery. An officer of the king's stables, under the master of the horse. Of these there are five, who, when his majesty goes abroad, ride in the leading coach, are in waiting, one at a time monthly, and have a table with the gentlemen ushers during the time, and a salary of 300/. a year each. They used to ride on horseback by the coach side, when the king travelled; but that, being more expensive to them than necessary to the sovereign, has been discontinued.
