Comonly reputed this hee so better knoweth being hired by the sayd Ewens
and goeing a foremast man of the sayd ship the voyage in question./

To the 2 article hee saith that in the moneth of January 1648 the sayd ship
Scipio was bound from this port of London upon a tradeing voyage to
the Streights and other parts neere adioyning and soe to returne to this port
of London and saith in persuance of such voyage the sayd shipp about the latter
end of the sayd moneth of January 1648 fell downe to the Hope And
the sayd shipp at here goeing out had noe designe of goeing to Brazeele
or any other parts of the West Indies as this deponent beleeveth for that
the sayd Ewens hyred this deponent only to goe from London upon a tradeing
voyage to the Streights and back thence to this port of London, and made then
noe mention of her goeing to the Brazeele or any other parts of the West Indies
And further hee cannot depose not being privie to the hyreing of any
other of the shipps company nor knowing at what rates or upon what
conditions they were hyred/

To the 3: 4th and 5th articles of the allegation hee saith that before the goeing
forth off the shipp Scipio upon the voyage in question the arlate humfrey
ffosse was hyred to goe and did goe Boatswaine and the arlate John Tucker
Quartermaster and the arlate Charles howgate a foremast man of
the Scipio the voyage in question but at what rates or what conditions
they were hyred hee knoweth not but saith hee this deponent was hyred
at the usuall rate of a voyage from London to the straights which was
twenty three shillings per month or twenty two and six pence hee remembreth not well which And saith hee knoweth the sayd ffosse Tucker and
howgate as alsoe this deponent and the rest of the Scipio her company
proceeded upon her voyage from London to Genoa in the Straights and
there discharged her outwards ladeing and there tooke in some goods and went
with them to Ligorne where fayling of their designe they there landed
the goods brought from Genoa, and went from Ligorne to Allecant and
there tooke in goods and went therewith to Lisbon and there unladed them
And further saving his subsequent deposition hee cannot depose/

To the 6th and 7th articles hee saith that after the Scipio had at Lisbon
discharged her ladeing brought from Allecant the sayd Thomas Ewens
the Master did take upon him a new voyage to be made from Lisbon to
Brazeele and thence to returne to Lisbon and having contracted with the
freighters for that new voyage acquainted his shipps Company
therewith, who not being hyred for any such voyage were most off them
unwilling to goe the same and refused to goe the same as being as ?they
?conceived an unlawfull voyage for that thereby they should ?endure the
hazard of being taken by the hollanders which were then at difference[?s GUTTER]
with the Portugueses in whose behalfe that voyage was to be made and
also be reason of the unhealthfullnesse of the voyage it being beyond the
lyne and to the south latitude about fifteene degrees, whereupon the sayd
Ewans seeing the unwillingnesse of the company to goe the sayd voyage
to Brazeele did publiquely upon the deck of the Scipio in presence of
this deponent and his precontets Pinshurst and Bryant and divers others of the
sayd shipps company to encourage them the more readily to undergoe the
sayd voyage voluntarily promised to advance every ?one ?of Companyes wages
five shillings in the pound per month from that tyme during the sayd [?voyage GUTTER]
over and above the wages hee had agreed with them for when hee shipped
at London, and to pay every of them their wages then due till [?that GUTTER]
