‘Arif Big Efendi - Early 19th century Ottoman Official

Dear fellow H-Turk members,

I am looking for information about an Ottoman official by the name of ‘Arif Big Efendi. This official was active in Istanbul in the early nineteenth century and is supposed to have been “Master of Ceremonies” at the Ottoman court as late as 1807-8. It would be greatly appreciated if anyone can provide additional information about this individual or even potential sources that may contain information about him.

With many thanks,
Sajjad N.
