what monthly wages hee agreed with them for, but knoweth the rates sett
downe in the sayd schedule were the usuall rates then given to persons goeing
such voyages as the voyage in question in the like qualities and places as the sayd persons
schedulated served in in the sayd shipp Thomas and Lucie And further saving
his subsequent deposition hee cannot depose./

To the 4th 5th 6th and7th articles of the sayd libell hee saith that the sayd shipp
Thomas and Lucie in her course from Newfound land towards Naples mett with
a very violent storme wherein shee sponet her mizzen mast and foretopmast and
her master and Company in order to the better preservation of the sayd shipp and her
ladeing and their owne lives were foreced to cut downe her mayne mast by the board and
throwe over board all or the greatest part of the ffish that belonged to the sayd shipps
Company, and some part of the fish belonging to the Merchants, and the sayd shipp by
reason of the sayd storme grew very leakie and tooke in much water, yet by the
industrie of the company with much and continuall pumpeing shee was cleered
thereof and preserved from sinkeing, and by their sayd paines and labour was after
the sayd storme was over made reasonable tight, and soe continued, and the sayd
Company after the sayd storme in stead of their mayne mast cut by the board as afore=
sayd did make a Jury mast of a spare mayne top mast they had remayning aboard
the sayd shipp, and a missen mast of a spare sparr remayning aboard
and could have made a foretopp mast alsoe of other provisions in the sayd shipp if
the sayd Maples the Master would have suffered them soe to doe And saith that
the sayd storme being over and the sayd Jury mast and missen mast made and provided as
aforesayd and the winde standing fayre to that purpose this deponent and the rest
of the sayd shipps company did desyre and move the sayd Maples their master
that they might proceede on their voyage to the Straites and soe to Naples
at least make for some parts of Spaine or Portugall to sell their sayd
ladeing of fish the winde blowing then fayre for any of those places, but the
sayd master sayd the sayd shipp was soe much damnified by the sayd
storme that her ladeing would not be sufficient to repayre her in those
parts and make her fitt to sayle home to England or to the like effect, but
gave expresse order and command to the company thereof to sayle her
towards England, Whereas hee might as well and with as little stresse to the sayd shipp have sayled to the Straights Naples
or to Spaine or Portugall as for England the weather being
then fitt soe to doe and the sayd shipp as neere to the Straights, Spaine and
Portugall as to England, when hee was soe desyred by his company
to proceede on his voyage to Naples, which hee the sayd Maples refused
to doe although he sawe other shipps which were in company of the
Thomas and Lucie, and had receaved as much harme by the sayd storme
as shee had done did notwithstanding (the storme being over) steere
their course towards the straights in prosecution of their intended voyages, and as this deponent hath heard) one
of the sayd shipps soe in company of the Thomas and Lucie did arrive safely
at Naples whether theThomas and Lucie was to have gone, And thereupon
the Company of the sayd Thomas and Lucie perceiving that their sayd Master
William Maples was resolved to goe for England did in obsedience to
his Command sett sayle for England and arrived safe at Bristoll
there, not being able to reach Plymouth whether hee and they endeavoured to
have gone the premisses hee deposeth being one of the Company of and aboard
the Thomas and Lucie and an eye and eare witnes of them when they soe happened
and further saving his subsequent depositions hee cannot depose/
