Evidence from High Court of Admiralty
Fifty-five year old George Thorp deposed on February 12th 1559 in the High Court of Admiralty. He was examined on an allegation in the case of "Whiting against Lewellin and Gunhill".
George Thorp stated that he had known John Welde for twenty-three years and had known Benjiamin Mew for ten years. He added that in the year 1648 Benjiamin Mew was put and bound an apprentice to John Welde at the Cookes Hall, London. At the time of this apprenticeship binding George Thorp was a member off the Cook's Court being held in the hall of the Cook's company and saw the binding. Benjiamin Mew continued an apprentice of John Welde for the whole of 1654 and for a good part of 1655.
