Evidence from High Court of Admiralty

Twenty-seven year old Thomas Ramse deposed on January 3rd 1655 in the High Court of Admiralty. He was examined on an allegation on behalf of the master of the coal ship the Dove, William Cable, in the case of "De Haze, Stock and others against Cable".[2]

The case concerned the alleged damage caused by the ship the Dove to another collier ship the Successe.

Thomas Ramsw denied that the bow of the Dove had been damaged in collision with the Successe. He claimed that "the bowe of the said shipp the Dove was amended after her arivall the said voyage at Newcastle by having a peece graven into her head, which did not happen nor was donne because it was broken with running against another shipp, but because the old peece which was taken out was rotten and unserviceable, all which hee knoweth because hee this deponent did the said repaire".[3]
