Richard Grible. dwelling in Kings streete neere newe gravell Lane
in Wapping wall, mariner aged about 50 yeares sworne and examined
as aforesayd

To the first and second Interrogatoryes he sayeth That the shipp the Rebecca
of London (wherof Richard Buckham was master) sett sayle from Gravesend
bound for Virginia on or about the last day of May last past; and
the interrate Peter Rexford was the masters cheife mate and ffrancis
drake was gunners mate of the sayd shipp the sayd voyage; The premisses
he knoweth to be true for that he was one of the fore mast men of the sayd
shipp the sayd voyage./

To the third he sayeth That the sayd ffrancis drake when the sayd
shipp was at Virginia the voyage aforesayd was by the report of
the Chirurgeon and the generall opinion of the company of the sayd shippe
sicke of a drye scurvey Et alr nescit deponere./

To the fourth he sayeth that the sayd ffrants drake whilest the sayd shipp
was at Virginia the voyage aforesayd, beinge much distempered with drincke
came into the sayd shipps boate to goe abord, and the sayd Peter Rexford
beinge in the sayd boate, and havinge commannde of all the company in the
masters absence, commannded the sayd drake to hoyste up the sayle of the sayd
boate, and uppon some words which past betweene the sayd Rexford and
and drake, they were strivinge and buslinge togeither and the sayd drake
standinge uppon some hogsheads of Tobaccoe in the same boate
had gott the sayd Rexfords head under his arme, and then Andrew
Johnson the gunner of the sayd shipp stopt to them and parted them,
and in the partinge of them, one of the sayd drakes leggs slipt in betweene
two hogsheads of Tobaccoe and the rest of his bodye fell backwards, and
presently theruppon the sayd drake cryed out that his thighe was broken
but this deponent who was one of them that rowed the sayd boate at that tyme
and others did not beleive the same, but supposed that the sayd Drake because
he was soe distempered with drincke did not knowe what he sayd, but it
proved true which he sayd, and afterwards the Chirurgeon of the sayd shipp with
the helpe of a Chirurgeon of another shipp did sett his thigh agayne
and this deponent beinge then present did heare when the bones of his thigh went
in to their place agayne, and did see the Chirurgeon putt and binde
splints about his thighe and tould the sayd drake that he must lye still twenty
foure dayes before the sayd splints should be taken off, but the sayd splints
were taken off and lyeinge betweene the sayd draks chest and his bedd
within fourteene or fifteene dayes after he receaved the sayd hurt, contrarye
to the sayd Chirurgeons directions, and afterwards his thigh grewe worse
and worse, and much putrifyed, and the master of the sayd shipp and likewise
the Chirurgeon would have had the sayd drake caryed on shoare where he
mighte have fresh victualls, but the sayd drake would nnot yeild therunto, but was
addicted to drinckinge of stronge waters, whilest he was under the Chirurgeons
hands, and dyed in the sayd shipp homewards bound, and he beleiveth that the sayd Rexfor
was absolutely cleere and guiltlesse of his death, and that the sayd drake would have
bene a livinge man at this tyme if he would have followed the masters and Chirurgeons
directions And further he cannot depose/
