William Avery de Truro in Comitatu Cornubia
Nauta aetatis sua 50 annorum aut eo circiter testis
productus et iuratus./

Ad primum et secundum arlas dicta allegaconis deponit et dicit that
hee this deponent being second Mate to Captaine Edmond Ellison
aboard the ship the [?Pearry] att such tyme as the said ship was lost
to and taken by the ffrench as is hereafter expressed And saith
that soe soone as the ship the Great Alexandria arlate was
espied to bee a man of warre and (by her Giveing the Pearcy
chase for a day and a night tyme together) was likely[?e] to fall upon
the said ship, hee this deponent together with
the producent Symon Bayly and diverse others of the said
shipp the [?Perrys] Company did earnestly desire and importune

said ffrench man of warre came within the Comand of theire Gunnes
telling him that thereby they might in all likelyhood shoot the

not fire first at her least thereby hee should bee guilty of the breach

the said shippe the Pearry and then being againe requested
by the said Symon Bayly this deponent and others of the said shipps

bring her broad side upon the head of the Alexandria and
lay her thwart the hawse and then lett fly her great gunnes

the said ship fore and aft and soe have distroyed many of theire
enemies they being upon the decks of the said man of warre in
great abundance and nombers. but the said Captaine Ellison
would not permitt this to be done neither, either of which
courses, if the said Captaine Wllison would have condescended
unto this deponent saith hee is very confident would have
prevented the said ffrench man of warre from boarding the
said shipp the Pearry as afterwards shee did, and soe the
