for the sayd voyage. And saith that in his passage upon the sayd voyage
the sayd shipp mett with so many and long continueing Calmes that she
spent three monethes before she came into the duynes by reason whereof
the sayd shipps provisions of bread beefe and fish were wholly spent so as
this deponent and Company were enforced and did putt into the duins for
the procuring of bread fresh water and other provisions for the sustenance
of the men who had nothing left to eat and without which they could ot
continue on their voyage for hamburgh, and the tyme they so putt into
the downes happened on or about the fourteenth day of August 1654
last past old stile. And he further saith that upon the eighteenth
day following of the same moneth and whilest the sayd shipp Angelo
Custode lay there in the duins for the taking in of her sayd provisions
there happened a sudden and violent storme at sea, by the force whereof
a new flemmish pinke riding there was loosed from her anchor hold
and fall violently upon the Angelo Custode and brake her boltspritt
and her head and carryed the same together with the yards sayles and
tackle of the boltspritt in to the sea where they were all lost. insomuch

danger of sinking so as one halfe of this deponents mariners gott into
the boat to escape for their lives; this sayd accident he saith happened
in the night tyme of the sayd [?18th] day, and the sayd tempest continued
till the next day being the nineteenth day new (sic) stile of the sayd moneth
in the morning of which day another great fflemish pinque having
a while before cast Anchor was forced therefrom by the impetuous

for avoyding of splitting and wracking one shipp against the other
were constreyned and did cutt their Cables and left their
Anchors in the sea, how beit he saith the sayd Anchors and
cables were found againe, and preserved, but one new cable and a great
anchor were utterly lost. And moreover saith that the sayd nineteenth day
of August the sayd storme still continueing working, by reason of
the dammages aforesayd a third flemmish vessell being a shipp faell
likewise foule upon the Angelo Custode and broke downe part of
her side insomuch that she now tooke in so much water, as there was noe
hope of preserving her. And the English pilott who was on board her
conceyving it impossible to preserve her made in for dover road purposely
to putt her ashoare and take her chance to the losse of her selfe and
lading, desiring onley to save the mens lives, which were in great
danger continuall pumping being scarce sufficient to keepe her a float
