The Admiralty Building
The origin of the office of Admiralty is obscure. There are early references placed that office at Deptford, in a house erected in 1514 or 1546 and mentioned as late as 1724. From the above said origin, the Admiralty office moved very often, and in an old one still displays his foul anchor. All changes are very well explained by the author of this paper, which notices the previous and posterior use of each building. The paper also refers to the functions of the Admiralty Commissioners, their residences, and the staff of 15 people in 1694.
