upon her voyage for this port of London: All which he well knoweth
be true for that he was Masters mate in and of the sayd shipp the sayd
voyage. And otherwise cannot depose, saving that the sayd shipp as
he saith lost her foremast allso in the sayd Storme by the fury thereof.

To the second article of the sayd allegation This deponent saith that the sayd shipp
being so fitted att the Bermadaos sett sayle from thense for England
and had a Pilot on board her to conduct her safe from the sayd Island
howbeit he saith that about the second day of November 1655 the sayd
shipp by reason of the wind which proved more scanty than was expected
(not withstanding the diligence and Industry of the sayd Pilot then on board
her) did strike upon some rockes, which occasioned so great a leake in
the sayd shipp (for the space of two dayes and nights especially) that the sayd
Master and Mariners could scárce keepe her from sinking although
they did use their utmost diligence by pumping to keepe her dry
which he knoweth to be true being Masters mate on board her as aforesayd
And otherwise he cannot depose.

To the third article of the says allegation hee saith that about the beginning of the
moneth of december 1655. the sayd shipp being come with her lading
neere the Coaste of England in her Course for this Port of London
mett with another violent Storme and Stresse of weather by the
violence whereof her mainsayle and mizzen were torne and rent
in peices, and the better part of them lost so as the sayd shipp and
her lading were in danger of being lost. the premisses he knoweth
to be true for the reasons aforesayd. And otherwise cannot depose

To the fourth article of the sayd allegation This deponent saith that the said shipp
Susan and Anne when she began the sayd voyage from the Barbadaos
for the sayd Port and before the sayd Hurricano and disasters befell
her as aforesayd, was a stanch and able shipp and sufficiently provided
for such a voyage. And the goods he saith were all well stowed and
dennaged, but the water came in in so extraordinary a manner when the
mayne mast was cutt downe that it rann downe into the hold and wasted
much of the sugars, and the heads of many of the Casks, being as should seeme
not so well fastned as they might have beene, became loose and fell out,
which losse and dammage he saith he could not be avoyded. And hee
saith that the lossening and falling out of the topps or heads of the sayd Casks
and the dammage and losse that before the sayd sugars was caused by the
violence of the sayd Stormes, and disasters aforesayd. and not by any fault
or neglect of the sayd master and Company of Mariners or any of
them, which he knoweth being masters mate of the sayd shipp the sayd
voyage, and saving the premisses so fall out as hee hath declared
And otherwise hee cánnot depose, saving that hee likewise further
saith that neither the sayd Master or Mariners nor any of them did strike
out the heads of the sayd Casks, or embezall any of the sayd sugars
so farr as he knoweth beleiveth or hath heard

To the last hee saith his deposition is true.
