The Admiral and Bailie Courts of Leith in 1883 (Now changed)

THOUGH the Right Hon. the Lord Provost of
Edinburgh is Admiral of the Firth of Forth, the
Provost of Leith is Admiral of the port thereof,
and his four bailies are admirals-depute. These,
with the clerk, two advocates as joint assessors,
and an officer, constitute the Admiral and Bailie
Courts of Leith.
