there came n board her on the seaven and twentieth of November 1654
(being munday) Mr John Gard merchant residemt on ffiall to whom
the said shipp was consigned to be there laden) and Mr Richard husbands
master of the Hopefull Adventure of Londonm then alsoe riding in
the said Roade; And they further depose that the said Mr husbands
was desired by the said Mr Gard and by their said master Roger
Young then and there alsoe present, to measure the said shipp the
Edward, and to see and take ntice thereby what
quantitie of wines shee might carry more, if shee had bin fully
laden there, and that the said Mr husbands thereupon tooke
hoopes and a longer and in the presence and sight of
these deponents measure her, and having soe measured her, hee
then and there in their presence and hearing averred and declared
that shee might stowe and carry in her hould fifteene pipes more
than were then in hould, and hat over and besides the said fifteen pipes, shee might stowe and carry on her gunn
deck before the maine mast 38 pipes of wine more then was
then aboard her, being in all 53 pipes more thanwere laden aboaard
And they further iyntly depose that having long used seafaring in
merchants service and being well acquainted with the stowage
of goods, they conceive and estimate that the said shipp would well
have received fifteene pipes of wine in hold, and eight and thirtie
on her gun deck before the maine mast, more than were laden
aboard her, and further that after the said ,easurement there
were noe wines at all laden aboard her for the merchants accompt
soe that shee came to New England soe many pipes as aforesaid short of what
shee could and might have received aboard at ffiall, if the merchants had
supplied the same; And this deponent William Glanville having
nowe seene a certificate of schedule beginning thus. whereas Mr
John Gard et cetera and ending thus, writing my hand this 27th November
1654, and subscribed Richard Husbands, saith and deposeth that
hee was present at ffiall and did see the said Richard husbands
with his owne hand after the said measurement subscribe the said certificate, on the said 27th
of November 1654, which donne, this deponent William Glanvile
then and there put his name thereto with his owne hand writing as
a witnesse as mowe appeareth,. And they all ioyntly depose that
in their iudgement the said shipp might well have received and
carried the said fifteene pipes in hold and thirty eight pipes betweene
decks from the maine mast forwards on safely in all probabilitie
to her intended port of Boston in New England over and besides the said two hundred
and fiftie pipes soe as aforesaid laden for the merchants account. The premisses
they depose being of the said shipps company and seeing the said premisses
soe to happen as they have predeposed.
