Most of them were courtiers or politicians, not professional naval officers. The Lord High Admiral was one of the nine Great Officers of State in medieval England.
The office of Lord High Admiral, when it was not occupied by an individual, was "put into commission" and exercised by a board of Lords Commissioners headed by a First Lord of the Admiralty. This became the usual state of affairs.
In 1964, the office of First Lord of the Admiralty was abolished and the functions of the commissioners were transferred to the Admiralty Board of a tri-service Defence Council, and the title of Lord High Admiral was re-vested in the Sovereign.
