likewise of a spare sparr remayning aboard her they made
a Mizen Mast, and could have made a fore topp mast alsoe of other provisions
in the sayd shipp if the sayd Maples their Master would have suffered them
soe to doe, which Jury mast and Mizen Mast being made and the storme over
the winde stood fayne for the sayd shipp to proceede on her voyage
to the Straights and soe to Naples and also to goe for Spaine or Portugall
whereupon the sayd shipps company pressed and desyred their sayd Master that
hee would proceede on the sayd voyage to Naples or else make to some port
of Spaine or Portugall to make market of the fish on board, which hee might
then have done, the winde being fayre, and serving to goe to any of the sayd
places as well as to come for London, and the sayd shipp being then as neere
the Straights Spaine and Portugall as England, and might with as little stresse
to the sayd shipp have gone for any of the sayd places as to England, but the
sayd Master (although hee saw other shipps who were in the
Company of the Thomas and Lucie and had spent their mayne masts in the sayd
strome and receaved as much damage thereby as the Thomas and Lucie had done)
did steere their course, some towards the Streights, some towards Spaine, in
prosecution of their intended voyages, yet hee the sayd Maples would not
consent and yeild that the shipp Thomas and Lucie should proceede on her voyage
to Naples, or make to any port of Spaine or Portugall to sell her fish on
board, but sayd that the sayd shipp Thomas and Lucie had receaved soe
much damage by the sayd storme that her ladeing of goods would not
suffice to repayre her in those parts, and that hee would goe for England
that his owners might see what damage was happened to his sayd shipp and
to her ladeing of ffish on board her and soe compelled his sayd shipps company
to sayle for England, which they in obedience to his commands did, and safely
arrived at Bristoll not being able to gett to Plymouth which the sayd Master and
company endeavoured to have done, And further hee cannot depose saving hee
saith hee hath heard that some of the shipps which were in company of the Thomas
and Lucie and damnified by the sayd storme in manner predeposed, did arive safely
one of them in Spaine and an other in Portugall and there made their marketts
of the ffish they had then on board and are since returned safe one of them to
Plymouth, and an other of them to London, the premisses hee deposeth being one of
the company of the shipp Thomas and Lucie and an eye and eare witnes of the things
by him positively and of his knowledge deposed and having credibly heard the rest/

To the 8th and 9th hee saith the sayd shipp Thomas and Lucie being as aforesayd arrived
at Bristoll the company thereof did by the Comand of their sayd Master William
Maples there unlade all the ffish taken into her at Newfound land (except what
was throwne over board as aforesayd) and afterwards did by his like comand
receave soe much of the same ladeing againe on board the sayd shipp as was
dry and well conditioned and other drye fish sent therewith aboard her, and therewith
departed from Bristoll with intente to prosecute her first intended voyage for
Naples and Lepro, but after they had bin two or three dayes at Sea a great
storme arose the violence whereof brake divers of the beames of the sayd shipp
and soe bruised her that shee became very leakie and tooke in soe much water
that the company with exceeding great paines at the pumpe could hardly
keepe her above water, and the master and company of her seeing what danger
they were in were constrayned in order to the preservation of her, her ladeing
and their owne lives, to returne againe to Bristoll, whether being come the
sayd shipps company by their sayd Masters order unladed the sayd shipp [?XXX GUTTER]
