Developed from several other positions and in used by the early 15th Century, a Commissioner was a Nobleman appointed by a King or Queen, to carry out a specific task for them. Often used in outlaying Districts. The Commissioner had “supreme Authority” to issue a Warrant or otherwise enforce Royal Laws. The position would evolve further into that of The Lord High Commissioner (which represents The Crown in Church related matters, in proxy).
