Evidence from High Court of Admiralty

Thirty-seven year old Andrew Wise deposed on July 16th 1651 in the High Court of Admiralty. He was examined on an allegation on behalf of Henry Aggis and Company in "The claime of Henry Aggis and company for the ship the Golden Waggon (Peter Anis master)".[1]

Andrew Wise stated that he had known the ship the Golden Waggon for the last three years and knew her owners Henry Aggis and Company. This he knew because "hee this deponent for foure severall voyages which shee hath made to this port hath as a broker donne the busines concerning her and her said owners, and hath severall times remitted them moneys home by bills of Exchange due unto them as owners for her freight and that by the said masters order". The ship had been captured in the winter of 1650/51 by a Scilly man of war, and recaptured by Parliamentary ships, and was now in the River Thames lying at Saint Saviours dock.[2]
