To the fifth article of the said libell hee saith and deposeth That
hee hath used seafaring from his youth, and hath bin a master
of shipps and vessells for theise fourtie yeares last, and thereby well knoweth
that for all that time (and as hee hath heard for time beyond that
memory of man) there hath bin and still is a custome observed in this
port of London by and betweene masters and Chirurgeons of
shipps, that the Chirurgeon hired to serve in any shipp or vessell doe
not enter into pay untill the shipps comming to Gravesend outwards
bound upon any voyage. And that upon the retourne of shipps or
vessells from their voyage for this port, the Chirurgeons wages are
due and payable assoone as the shipp comes to Gravesend, and
forthwith upon the shipps said arivall, the Chirurgeons are to be
paid and dischardged from further service and attendance on or aboard
any such shipp or shipps, and from that time and dismissed from
any further moneth by pay from such shipp or shipps and the owners
thereof. And further that if after the retourne of any such shipp
or shipps from their voyage or voyages to Gravesend, any of the
said shipps company or folkes fell sick, or receive any hurt such Chirurgeon is
by the said custome not bound to applie or minister
medicaments or phisick or any meanes of care to him or them,
Unlesse hee be padid for the same by the Patient himselfe. But
saith that assoone as the shipp soe retournes to Gravesend, the Chirurgeon is free, and lawfully may by the said custome, leave the
said shipp, without expectation of any pay from that time, whereas
the rest of the company are not dischargeable untill
the shipp comes quite up and comes to an anchor and is mored. And otherwise
hee cannot depose.

To the sixth hee saith that by the custome aforesaid noe Chyrurgeon
is liable to pay any dammage that the goods aboard the shipp wherein
hee serves happen to receive aboard her, and that hee is not to
receive any primage or average, which hee knoweth by the
meanes aforesaid. And otherwise hee cannot depose.

Upon the rest hee is not examined by direction of the producent.

Repeated before doctor Clarke.
