And there was materialls sufficient to have made the sayd Stanchions strong
enough in case they would have made use of them. But he
saith the sayd Stancheons were made too weake and insufficient
and indeed so weake that soone after the sayd shipp was gone to sea with
the sayd horses, the sayd Stanchions did breake downe, and the
sayd horses by reason of such bad stowage fell one upon another
and so one killed another and all of them dyed one horse
onely excepted all which he knoweth for that he was a Passenger
in and on board the sayd shipp and saw the premisses so fall out
and heard this precontest William Tickell offer the Master and
Mariners of the sayd shipp strong and good sparrs which he
had provided some where of he brought aboard, for the making
the sayd Stanchions stong and sufficient, but they refused thee some
saying the stanchions they had made were strong enough, or to
that purpose. And saith that the Master and Company did
not proceed on to the Barbadoes but came to Newcastle, which
as this deponent hath heard and beleiveth was without order
of his Owners. And otherwise he cannot depose.

To the fourth article hee saith that the sayd Owners being Mr Batson and
Company (as by letters which he hath seene he came to know) and having
notice that the sayd horses were lost and sayd shipp receyved some
hurt and was come to Newcastle, ordered her to come into this
River of Thames neer to Gravesend there to be supplyed of what
she wanted and so to proceed on her sayd intended voyage. And
otherwise he cannot depose.

To the fifth article of the sayd allegation he saith it is not usuall to impresss the
mates or Boatswayne of any shipp being upon a voyage, and
in case any such be prest it is usuall upon their making knowne
their imployment to release them and accordingly he saw that
the sayd James Cooke and Maynard Johnson having bene once prest
were released presently upon their making knowne their offices
on board the sayd shipp. And further he ćannot depose not being
on board upon the sayd persons were last pressed, and submitted thereto
without returning to their respective imployment on board the
sayd shipp.

To the .6th. article of the sayd allegation he saith that the sayd Maynard Johnson
did behave himselfe Stubbornely and perversly on board the sayd
shipp not onely neglecting and refusing to obey the Masters Commands
but discouraging his fellowes in their dutyes, and particularly saith
that whilest the sayd shipp lay att NewCastle he heard the Master
call to him the sayd Johnson to call upp the Company to assist att the
removing of a stage for the Carpenters who went there doeing some
repairs to the sayd shipp, and heard the sayd Johnson refused to
call them, and heard him allso say, that the Mariners were fooles
if they gave their assistance or to that purpose. And further he
cannot depose.
