And saith he heard not any one say that the anchor which did the
dammage was not fastned to the Supply, but did heare the sayd Oakes
utterly disclayme the sayd broken anchor to have ever belonged
to the sayd vessell the Supply, and otherwise he cannot depose

To the fourth he saith that the shipp the Abraham sunke twice and
was weighed twice. and saith that the dammage was done in the
place where she first sunke having struck upon the anchor of
the Supply which caused her so to sinke. and saith that after her
first weighing she was removed about 24 foot from the place
where she first sunke but her dammage was so great by the anchor
as aforesayd that she sanke a second tyme, and happened at her
second sinking to lye neere the sayd broken anchor but not
upon it, neither did she beare upon it att all. And saith that true
it is that the hulke made use of for weighing of the Abraham
being grounded upon the same anchor which did the dammage to the
Abraham, this deponent and others did after the weighing of the
Abraham from the place where she sanke the second tyme being
neer but not upon the sayd broken anchor, presently goe to see the
place where the Supplyes anchor lay, and found it to lye 24 foot
and upward from the place where the Abraham sanke the second
tyme, but in the very same place where the Abraham was dammaged
and sunke the first tyme. And otherwise canot depose, saving
he saith he doth not know whether the Supplyes Anchor were cleare
from all dammage in regard the sayd Oakes though much importuned
thereto refused to weigh it.

To the fifth he saith It is very possible for a heavy vessell to be
bilged upon an anchor without hurting it or breaking the flooke
thereof especially an Holland vessell slightly built as the Abraham was
and is, and saith the flooke of the sayd Anchor did peirce the Abraham
in her plankes betwixt her timbers. and otherwise saving his foregoeing
depositions he cannot depose.

To the 6th he saith that the Anchor which did the dammage in question
was fastened to the Moorings of the fore part of the shipp Supply
and saith that the sayd broken anchor was left with Mr Lasly interrate
but is stollen away as this Rendent beleiveth out of his custody, but
where it is or what it is become of it he knoweth not. And otherwise
cannot depose.

To the 7th he saith and referrreth himselfe to his foregoeing depositions
and otherwise cannot depose, saving he saith he sawe not the bbedds
bookes packs and sugers opened, four Chests of sugar onely excepted
and one dry fatt of sugar, the sugar of all which was turned to
water most of it and become useles, and was spoyled.

Repeated before Doctor Clarke
and Doctor Godolphin


The sayd James Lashly to the
sayd Crosse Interrogatories. [CENTRE HEADING]

To the [BLANK IN MANUSCRIPT], he saith he is master of the sayd shipp the Abraham and hath noe
other Interest in her nor in her lading, and cometh to be a witness by
the meanes of Captaine Kelke, and expecteth noe benefit att all by or
for his testimony in this cause.
