about Christmas last past, and there
having taken aboard her lading of oiles and sope, shee departed
thence to come for London which her departure was about a moneth
after Christmas last past, The premisses hee deposeth and knoweth
to be true because hee went all the said voyage in the said shipp and
was one of her company videlicet one of her foremast men, Et
alr nescit deponere.

To the second hee deposeth that one Mr Bishop a merchant living
in Naples freighted the said shipp thence for Castle a Mer, Gallipoly
