and five men, and flie away with his owne man of warr, and soe
the said English frigaot (which hee afterwards heard named the Saphire)
tooke the said shipp the Saint Mary and her lading and carried them to
Plimouth, together with such persons as were taken in her, All which
hee knoweth, because hee was all the while in the Saint Mary (whereof
hee was Carpenter) and sawe the premisses soe donne. And

To the fifth and 6 articles hee saith that the said Collart nor any of

dominions, but at the time of his first seizure of her and all the while
shee was under the power of him and company this deponent and
six more of her owne company were continually aboard and never
dispossessed of her to the time of her taking by the Saphire:
Nor did the said Collard and company or
any of them during all the time shee was under their power, take out
of her other or more goods then about 20 small chests of sugar, and some
other pettie things, which hee knoweth being alwaies on board her.
And otherwise hee cannot depose.

To the 7th hee cannot depose.

To the 8th hee saith that the Captaine of the Saphire bringing the
Saint Mary into Plimouth hee there turned the ffrench company that
were put into her by Collard ashore, but for this deponent and
his precontest the Gunner and the other five of the Saint Marys owne
company hee kept aboard and never carried or suffered them to goe
ashore, nor caused them to be examined before the Major or otherwise
but after about foure or five dayes stay that hee had victualled his
frigat hee carrried them therein out againe to sea and after some
space meeting with a partie of 8 or 9 holland shipps, merchant
men, hee put them thereinto, namely every man into a severall
shipp, and soe let them goe, well knowing that they were of the
Saint Mary's owne company. And otherwise hee cannot depose.

To the 9th hee saith that after the said retaking by the Captaie of
the Saphire, hee the said Captaine and his companie at sea before
the bringing in of the Saint Mary to Plimouth, broke bulke and tooke out
of the Saint Mary and carried aboard the said frigot severall chests of
sugar, and other goods part of the Saint Maries lading, which hee
knoweth being then aboard the frigot whereunto hee was taken out
of the Maary, and seeing the said goods therein, and seeing them againe
taken out of the frigot at Plimouth and there sent ashore. And
