Cecil Torr

Cecil Torr (11 October 1857, Mitcham, London – 17 December 1928) was a British antiquarian and author.

After education at Harrow School, Cecil Torr matriculated on 7 June 1876 at Trinity College, Cambridge, graduating there B.A. 1880 and M.A. 1883. He was admitted in 1879 at the Inner Temple and was called to the Bar in 1882.

He lived in Wreyland, Dartmoor and wrote ''Small Talk at Wreyland'' (3 vols., 1918–1923); the first volume was an unexpected commercial success. His 1894 book ''Ancient Ships'' deals with the structure of ships that sailed the Mediterranean in 1000 B.C. – 1000 A.D. Provided by Wikipedia
