Oastend of which Adrian Vanhide Master) and to be in
the sayd vessell transported to Rotterdam and there delivered to
theire factors or Agents to be disposed for their use and accompt which
he knoweth for that he was then Master of the said Ketch and did
receyve the sayd serges on board him to be disposed of as aforesayd
by direction of the sayd ffurley and Page and otherwise he ćannot

To the second Article of the sayd allegation This deponent saith, That soone after the lading
of the sayd searges the sayd vessell the Coronation alias the ffortune
did sett sayle with the sayd goods towards the Port of Rotterdam, and
in her Course thither she was mett withall and sett upon by a Galliot
hoy being a Private Man of Warr of dover under the Command of
dirick Hendrix alias Swayne neere unto the Maze about the beginning
of March 1653. aforesayd and the sayd Hendrix with some of his
Company did come on board the sayd Ketch, and this deponent being present
they seized and tooke in their possessions and perused the Cocketts and
other dispatches that concerned the sayd searges and notwithstanding that they
did see by the sayd Cocketts and other writings, that the sayd searges did
belong to the sayd John ffurley and John Page of Colchester aforesaid,
yet the sayd Hendrix did take and carry away out of the sayd Ketch
the sayd twenty peices of mixed serges which were made up in two
packes belonging to the sayd John ffurley Jun; and the sayd ten
pieces of white serges which were made up allso in two other packs
belonging to the sayd John Page, and did ćarry away the same and
dispose them at his owne will and pleasure. All which this deponent
knoweth to be true being then Master of the sayd Ketch and an eye

To the third and fourth articles of the said allegation, This deponent saith that by the experience
he hath of Colchester serges and the usuall prices they yield in
Holland where he hath often tymes sold such serges, he doth verily
believe that the sayd twenty pieces of mixed serges were att the
tyme of their lading with the Customes and other dutyes discharged
to be sold in Holland worth eighty pounds sterling or thereabouts, and the sayd ten
pieces of white serges which the Customes and other dutyes worth
the sume of seventy pounds sterling or thereabouts and that the sayd
twenty and ten peices would then have yeilded the sayd respective prices
or neere thereabouts att Rotterdam and otherwise he ćannot depose
saving that he saith that the sayd serges had they not bene so seized by the
said Hendrix had in and would in all probability have arrived in safety
att Rotterdam and saving that he saith It is very probable that by
reason of the scarcity of English serges att that tyme in Holland (the
trade being interrupted by the warr) such goods would and might have
yeilded there a farr greater summe than this deponent hath predeposed
