Admiralty

The commercial importance of the port of Touques, from the 1331th century, justifies the establishment in 1786 of the seat of a particular administration: an Admiralty housed near the quays. The staff is made up of a lieutenant, a prosecutor, a commissioner, two bailiffs, a wharf master and a broker. They are responsible for ensuring order on the docks, where disputes are very numerous, to impose fines, to control traffic, the loading of gauges and to collect the taxes. The Admiralty monitors the fishing and fisheries established on the Touques. They are free of rights and are transmitted by inheritance. The Admiralty is responsible for watching the coast. Following the decline in economic activity at the port, it was abolished in XNUMX.
