Evidence from High Court of Admiralty

Fifty-six year old John Barrell deposed on July 16th 1650 in the High Court of Admiralty. He was examined on a libel in the case of "Mr Vassall and others against Jacket".[2]

The case concerned an ambitious (and failed) trading venture by English merchants carrying slaves into the Spanish West Indies from Guinea without licence, using three English ships.
