Biographical synthesis

Evidence from High Court of Admiralty

Twenty-one year old William Hogg deposed on April 27th 1658 in the High Court of Admiralty. He was examined on a libel on behalf of Edward Bartlet in the cause "Edward Bartlet against the ship called the Edward of London whereof Richard Stevens was master and against Richard Rooke and Company interveyning for their interest".[2]

The case concerns the ship the Edward of London, of which Richard Stevens was masteer and commander until the time of his death.

William Hogg was familiar with the ship the Edward, having sailed in another ship in her company in 1653. Hogg stated that the ship the Edward was in the River Thames in early 1654, and wanted great repairing, and especially cable and cordage". Her captain, Richard Stevens, came to Edward Bartlet, a ropemaker "and desired him the said Bartlet, to furnish him with the same, for the use of the said ship". Hogg testified that Bartlet "did furnish the said ship with all singular the cordage mentioned and Expressed in the schedule annexed to the said libell." Hogg had seen and carefully read the schedule and confirmed "it is of his this deponents handwriting, and was by him made and copyed out, of the said Bartletts. booke, And was and is true, and that all the said cordage was of the quality and quantity as in the said schedule is expressed, and were alsoe well worth the severall summes schedulate, and that they were then soe sommonly sold".[3] However, Edward Bartlet remained unpaid and had suffered "great losse and dammage, by not receiveing his principall, but knoweth not what to estimate the said damage at".[4]
