This deponent saith he sayled in the sayd shipp Angelo Custoda
with her Romanello Commander from Venice in the moneth of Aprill
last as one of her mariners this voyage which was to hamburgh
with a lading of Rice, Annis seeds brimstone Currants and
almonds, and that comeing to the English Channell the sayd
shipp was of necessity to stay in the downes for the great want of
provisions on board for the Mariners, And comeing to an anchor in
the downes whilest she stayde there for provisions in the month of
August last past 1654 there happened a violent storme att sea
which continued long and within that tyme forced three
fflemish one after another from their anchors, so as they fell
upon the Angelo Custoda, and the first of them broke downe
her head and boltspritt, the second forced the sayd Captaine this
deponent and Company to Cutt their Cables and leave their
anchors in the sea, three whereof were afterwards recovered,
and the third brake in the side of the Angelo Custoda soas the
water came into her [?amayne] and she was so bruised as that little
hope was left but that she would founder and perish in the sea: and
it was the common opinion aswell of the sayd Romanella and Company
as of an English Pilot on board that the sayd shipp and lading
of necessety must perish, and that all that could be done would be
to preserve the mens lives. howbeit a Pilot being sent from Dover
by the helpe of a Cable made fast to shoare did hale the sayd
shipp into the harbour which yet could hardly be effected though the
pumpe was continually kept att worke, for she was dasht [?sore] against
the [?sands] and was much bruised and gott many leakes so as a
great part of her lading was much hurt and damnifyed. And
saith that it was not possible to gett the sayd shipp to hamburgh
she was so torne and beaten, and besides ten of her Company
forsooke her att dover and durst sayle noe further in her. howbeit
the sayd Romanello this deponent and Company having gotten some of
her leakes stopped did with great hazard bring her to this Port
of London, and having unladen all her goods but the loose brim
stone, brought her to a place to be veiwed and repaired if it
might be, but she sett on ground and was [?XXX] on one side
so as her ribbs and sides and bottome [?barss]. and workmen that
came to veiw her were of opinion that a new vessell might
be bought with lesse money than she could be repaired. And
saith that the tackle and loose furniture of her were preserved
and allso most of the sayd loose brimstone was preserved which
he knoweth and well saw that many of the sayd goods were very
much damnifyed. And he was an eyewitnes of the premisses
being one of the Mariners of the sayd shipp Angelo as aforesayd
