Evidence from High Court of Admiralty
Thirty-three year old ffrancis Meed deposed on June 27th 1659 in the High Court of Admiralty. He was examined on an allegation on behalf of Henry Colquite in the case of "Wood Bradley and Company against Colquite".
ffrancis Meed stated that the ship the Desire (Master: Henry Colquite) did not come within three quarters of a mile of the ship the Alexander at the Canaries. Moreover, the Desire caused no ropes to be cut or damage to be caused to the other ship. At the time ffrancis Meed was himself in the ship the Island ffrigot, which was rising at Oratavo close to the Desire.
