hee beleeveth it is not proper for him to testifie or answer
anything for or against his owne
reputation, And further to this Interrogatorie hee cannot answere

To the 6th hee saith hee is worth twenty pounds his debts paid and
saith hee was required to testifie in this cause by the producent and
hath receaved xx s for his losse of tyme in Coming from Portsmouth
to London to be sworne and examined, and is not instructed by any one
what to depose and expecteth nothing more than what hee hath as aforesayd receaved
nor is promised anything more, And further to this Interrogatorie
hee cannot answere./

To the 7th Interrogatorie hee answereth as before that the shipp
the Prosperous was not lost for want of Ammunition but meerely
by reason shee was over powered in number of men as aforesayd,
and the noate in his Interrogatorie mentioned being now shewed
unto him and read unto him, hee saith that the
marke CR at the bottom thereof is his this deponents marke
which hee usually maketh, and beleeveth the same was by him sett
thereto as now it is, but with all saith
that whereas it is expressed therein that there was but tenn or
twelve shott at first aboard the Prosperous and that for want of powder and shott the Master and
Company of the Shipp Prosperous were forsed to surrender her
and her ladeing of Merchandizes to the man of warr, hee saith
the same was not soe read to him then when hee signed the same,
neither did hee before the Maior of Southampton affirme upon
upon a bill any thing to that purpose but saith that Robert
Richbell one of the parties in this suite did often tymes at his owne [?house] urge this
deponent to saye soe while the same noate was
drawing up at his house to bee prepared for this deponent to
signe before the sayd Mayor, but this deponent constantly denyed
that the sayd shipp Prosperous and goods in her was lost and surrendered
for want to powder and shott, and saith this deponent knew not that
it was soe expressed therein when hee signed the same before the
sayd Major, And saith what ever is expressed in the sayd
Noate contrary to this deponents deposition now made
in this Court was put into the sayd noate without the knowledge
and contrary to the intente of this deponent, and is utterly false
and untrue, and saith by virtue of his oath that this deposition
now made in this court is truth, And to the rest of the Interrogatorie
hee cannot answere knowing nothing touching the noate annexed
to the allegation aforesayd nor having deposed any thing touching
the same./

Repeated before doctor Godolphin

the marke of the sayd
Christopher C R Rogers./ [MARKE, RH SIDE]
