preservation of the goods aboard and their owne lives to returne therewith
in to the Port of Bristoll arlate where by their sayd Masters direction
they unladed her of all her sayd ladeing of ffish there taken in before her
last goeing from thence And the sayd Master after shee was soe unladed
caused her to be viewed by Master shipp Carpenters, who upon view of
her found some of her beames to be broken and that shee was soe weake
and insufficient that shee was not fitt to performe a voyage from thence
to the straights and could not be made fitt to proceede on her sayd intended
voyage or any other voyage to the Straights without great costs and expence of much tyme, And saith the sayd
William Maples after his second arrivall at Bristowe did not declare to this
deponent (or any others of the shipps company that hee knoweth of) that hee
purposed to proceede with his ayd shipp and ladeing to Naples and soe to Lepra
and from thence back to England (which was the voyage this deponent and the rest of the
sayd shipps company were first hyred at London to goe upon) but only sayd
hee intended to goe with his sayd Ladeing of ffish to some part of the Straights
or to that effect but discovered not to what Ports or places hee intended
And thereupon this deponent and divers others of the sayd shipps company (standing neede of
necessaries or cloathes and other things fitt for such a voyage as to the Straights (it
being winter tyme and they unprovided of necessaries by reason they had lost their
Cloathes and their adventure of ffish by the storme predeposed of when they came
from Newfound land) did earnestly importune the sayd Maples to let them
have some part of their wages due to them to provide them such necessaries as
they wanted but the sayd Maples refused to pay them any part thereof to supply
their necessities, by which meanes this deponent and the arlate Peter Bartlet
William hamblin and other the Mariners of the sayd shipps company were
constreyned to leave the sayd shipp and come to London to their freinds to bee
supplyed with necessaries The premisses hee deposeth being one of the shipps
company and present at the premisses predeposed And further hee cannot
to these articles depose/

To the 12th hee saith that hee well knoweth both the Ports of Bristoll and
London and hath frequented them both and thereby observed the hyre usually
given to Mariners in them both and knoweth that Mariners are to be hyred
upon any voyage from Bristoll at cheaper rates, then from the port of
London And further hee cannot depose saving hee saith hee beleeveth the shipp
Thomas and Lucy neede not nor doth stay at Bristoll for want of mariners
to serve in her at as cheape rates as the wages of the Company of the sayd
shipp Thomas and Lucie which were hyred as aforesayd at London - upon the first
proceeding of the sayd shipp from thence upon the voyage in question, and saving
hee knoweth not whether William Maples hath hired any other Mariners nor
what hee hath contracted with them for./

To the 13th hee cannot depose

To the 14th article hee saith that besides the want this deponent and the rest of the
sayd shipp Thomas and Lucies Company had of Cloathes and other necessaries
they well knew the sayd shipp was exceeding leakie and not fitt to goe a voyage
and understood by the Carpenters who viewed her at Bristoll that shee
could not be made fitt and serviceable to goe to sea without much cost and expence
of tyme, and therefore durst not adventure to sea in her as shee was
without repayreing for feare shee should have foundered in the sae And
further hee cannot depose./

To the 15th hee saith hee well knoweth hee this deponent and the arlate William
Hambly Peter Bartlet and the rest of the company of the saud shipp the Thomas and Lucie did faithfully
