proceede if it were possible on her voyage, and found that her keele was
splitt, and shee soe maimed and dashed that with all they could doe
they could hardly repaire her soe as to bringe her for London; but
having donne their best in her repaire, they adventured to bringe her
for London and arived there with her and her lading on or about the
sixth of September last old stile, and after such her arivall shee dischardged
all her said goods saving the brimstone, which was in her for ballast;
And having dischardged trhe said goods her said companie carried her to
Saint Catherins staires, there to lay her ashore to have her viewed and
[?course] taken for her calking and repairing, but saith that upon the
ebb of the same tide that brought her to the said staires, shee fell
upon one side, and soe splitt, that the next tide shee
was fulll of water, and soe shee still continewes, All which hee
knoweth being Carpenter of her and present and and seeing
all the premisses soe done. And saith that severall shipwrights
have bin brought to view her and consider if shee were
recoverable and could be made serviceable, but they all agree that
shee would cost twice more to raise and recover her for any
service than shee is worth, and saith that such of her tackle and
rigging as could be preserved, are saved and laid up in a warehouse.
And further that tenn of her company seeing her in such perill in the
downes, and despairing of their owne safetie if they staid any longer
in her, there deserted her, and got ashore, by which means the
rest (whereof this deponent was one) were much distressed, and thereby
and by the said storme put into extreme danger of being
cast away.
