The lowest type of house servant. You would start as a pantry boy and hope to work up to a butler. A pantry is a food storage area.

But I think Mozza means it as some sort of *rent boy*- a play on the words pantry boy.

To call someone a jumped up pantry boy is to suggest they are acting above their station.
