What is the history of the Parliamentarians of the House?

(From The Office of the Clerk of the House)

Persons who performed various aspects of the Parliamentarian's duties held a series of titles throughout congressional history, including “Messenger to the Speaker," "Clerk to the Speaker," and "Clerk at the Speaker's Table." Beginning in the 70th Congress (1927-1929) the title became "Parliamentarian."
