  • "Laws of Oleron, are certain laws of the navy or marine, which were framed and drawn up by Richard I. at the Island of Oleron, near the coast of Poictou, the inhabitants of which have been deemed able mariners for these seven hundred years past. These sea-laws, which have been reckoned the most excellent of the kind, are recorded in the Black Book of the Admiralty."
