Trans. Devon. Assoc. vol. 27, (1895) pp.226-233.

Prepared by Michael Steer

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. The paper describes and analyses a scandalous incident involving claims of piracy. Google with the Archive Organization has sponsored the digitisation of books from several libraries.
