George Browne of Limehouse in the County of
Middlesex Mariner aged 60. yeares or thereabouts
a Wittnes sworne and examined saith as followeth

To the 4th Article of the said Allegation hee saith That hee this deponent
having for many yeares been a Mariner and Master of a shipp frequen=
ting and using the trade of Turkey and particularly of Ciprus arlate
well knoweth, That Ciprus cotton woolls are usually and ordinarily
putt in very great baggs, which cannot be stowed without very great
paines and difficulty more especially when a shipp draweth nere to
her full lading, having already receaved the most considerable part
quantity of her cargo, And saith that upon the same grounds of
experience hee well knoweth and affirmeth for a truth well knowne
to Masters and Mariners using that trade, that fortie fower
men aboard a shipp of two or three hundred tunns or thereabouts
having already received and laden aboard her one hundred baggs of wooll
and 400. baggs and upwards of gaulls cannot possiblie bring on board
receive and lade and steeve above eight baggs of Cyprus woolls a day one day with
another, considering all the troubles accident and incident to such lading
as the fetching of the steeving geare and provisions and the woolls to
be steeved, fitting and repairing the steeving geare upon all emergent
occasions and carryeing the same ashoare againe; And further to this
Article hee saith hee cannot depose, for that hee was not at Ciprus

steeving arlate./

To the 10th Article of the said Allegation hee saith and deposeth, That by
his owne practice and experience as aforesaid, hee well knoweth, That
ordinarily, shipps which have not compleated their Cargaison at Cyprus doe
touch at Zant in their way for London, and there take in Currants
and many times come thither expressely in expectation of Companie, for their better securitie, in which
cases Zant is commonly accompted the best and nearest way for London
though in deed, theise considerations excepted, it be something out of the
direct Course And further hee cannot depose./

To the rest hee is not examined by direction of the producent:-/

To the Crosse Interrogatories./:. [CENTRE HEADING]

To the first and 2nd Interrogatories hee saith hee was not in the voiage in question,
and therefore can depose nothing as to the contents of theise Interrogatories.

To the third hee answereth, That hee was not at Ciprus, when the shipp
Thomas Bonadventure was there the voiage in controversie, and therefore
knoweth not at what distance shee there lay from the shoare, nor how many baggs
of woolls shee could receive aboard her within the spaces of time interrate

To the 4th hee saith hee hath not soe deposed; /

To the 5th hee saith hee hath bin two sewall voiages at Cyprus interrate
and hath come from thense so many times for England

To the sixth hee saith, That the direct Course to sayle from
Salinas roade in Cyprus for England is to saile thence to the
