Biographical synthesis

Edmond Reynollds (alt. Reynolds) (b. ca. 1607; d. ?). Cooper. Cooper on the Owners Adventure on a whaling voyage in 1656

Evidence from High Court of Admiralty

Fifty year old Edmond Reynolds deposed on January 1st 1657 in the High Court of Admiralty.[1] He was examined on a libel on behalf of "Batson Beane Golderne and Company" in the case of "Richard Batson, Humfrey Beane Gowen Golderne and Company against Edward Gosling and Richard Mandrie and William Humfreys".

Reynolds gave his occupation as cooper and stated that he went as cooper on a whaling voyage in the Owners Adventure to Spitzbergen.

He had very considerable experience of whaling, stating that "hee hath used the Greeneland ffishing many yeares, and hath made eleaven or twelve severall voyages thither as a Cooper".[2]

Reynolds claimed that being hired as cooper he could not be held responsible for miscarriages "touching sea affayres". Chantrall defined his duties as being land-based - "hee being to performe his office at land after fish are taken, and having only care committed to him to put it safe into casks either boyled or bloubered."[3]
