TOR-MOHAM is a parish in Newton-Abbot district, statistically identical with Torquay town. The town's economy was initially based upon fishing and agriculture, but in the early 19th century the town began to develop into a fashionable seaside resort, initially frequented by members of the Royal Navy during the Napoleonic Wars while anchored in the bay and later by the cream of Victorian society as the town's fame spread. This retrospective treats with Torbay's history from the very earliest times to the arrival in 1871 of Napoleon III.
