Henry Harlinge (b. ca. 1628; d. ?). Wharfinger at Ralphs Key.
Resident in Saint Dunstans in the East in 1655 and 1656.
Evidence from High Court of Admiralty
Twenty-seven year old Henry Harlinge deposed on June 20th 1655 in the High Court of Admiralty. He was examined in the case of "[?Olany] and Chappell against Stancliffe. He stated that he had lived in the parish of Saint Dunstans in the East "about sixe yeares last past". He added that "he this deponent belongeth unto a wharfe called Ralphs key nigh Billingsgate". He had known a lighter known as the French lighter for about two years. A quarter of a year ago this lighter had brought a number of bales of goods to Ralphs Key. Some of these goods were damaged when they were put on shore. The damage was caused by water, but he was unable to say whether this was the result of the insufficiency of the lighter or the neglect of the porters used in the unlading of the goods. Despite these doubts, he suggested that the French lighter had a "rank keele" and he had heard that other goods, in addition to those mentioned in the legal case in question, had been damaged in the same lighter.
Herny Harlinge deposed a year later on July 14th 1656 in the High Court of Admiralty. He gave his age again as twenty-seven, but gave his residence as "Ralphs Key, London". He was examined on behalf of the State regarding a lighter named the William, which was of the burthen of twenty-five tonnes and a second lighter of a similar burthen.
