árlate, taking a boate (as his said shipp was comming up the River of
Thames) and comming before to London to speake with his Merchant, and
returning to goe aboard, this deponent on a morning happening about six
monethes since, carried him and Mr Shipton a broker in this deponents boate
aboard his said shipp the wildeman then lying at anchor right before Greenwich
a little above the bridge, where (as her company said) shee had come to
an anchor that night, And coming soe aboard this deponent sawe
a Pilote aboard her that had come to her about Dover or Deale; and
saith the place where the said shipp then rode at anchor was in the middle
of the River where shipps doe usually ride, and alsoe sawe fishermen
busie with two boates, one on one side and the other on the other side of
the shipp pulling up and cutting their weales, to whom this deponent
spake and asked them what they meant to cut their weeles in that manner
seeing the said shipps company were going to weigh their anchor, the tide
then serving, and that the said weales would have little or noe dammage./
But for any of the company of the wildeman hee saith they did not
meddle with the said weales to doe them any hurt, nor could they help
the dammage if any happened to the said weales, comming to anchor
in an usuall place where shipps bound for London, and loosing their
tide use to stop and expect the next tide; And saith the said company
and the pilote then averred that till that morning they knew nothing
of the said weales being there nor did this deponent see any buoy or
[?mar]ke whereby the company of the wildeman should or might take
any notion of any weales or other thing being there. And otherwise
hee cannot depose.

in the river of Thames before Greenwich neare the shore, and
otherwise hee cannot answer, for hee came not thither till the next

To the second hee saith hee hath noe relation to the said shipp or the
master, and that hee is an Englishman, and otherwise negatively, saying
hee understandeth English and noe other language.

To the third negatively.
