Repeated before John Godolphin

The same day [CENTRE HEADING]

Examined on the sayd allegation

Rp. 2us

John Hoppell of Ratclifff Mariner thirty yeares
or therabouts a witness sworn and examined saith as
followeth videlicet./

To the first second third and 4 th articles of the sayd allegation he saith that
he this deponent being on and Commander of a shipp called the Bettie of Kingsale
in Ireland was at sea taken by certayne Brest men of warr and carried into
Galisia in the King of Spaines dominion and from thence travailed by
land into ffrance to Rochell and from thence came a passenger home
for England in the arlate ship the Willing mynde and saith she came
from the Island of Saint Maytine neere Rochell in company of other Merchants shipps on the 25th day of March last under convoy of the Saphire and Constant Warwick arlate for
prevention of danger of being taken by dunkirke man of warr and the
men of warr enemies of this nation, And saith that in her course toward
England found stormy weather happened, and the sayd Convoyes so being
shorte of victualls made what haste they could for the coast of England
and the shipp Willing mynde was thereby forced to beare sayle then
ordinary, to keepe company with the sayd convoyes, and thereby prevent danger of being taken by man of war, and he saith the sayd shipp the Willing
Minde (though she were otherwise of this deponents sight and observation a
a stronge and tight shipp) by reason meerely of her bearing sayle to
keepe company with the sayd Convoyes and by reason of the weather was som what
stormie was [XXXX] and did receive water into her holds, which the Master and Company could
not prevent although they kept the pumpe continually goeing and did their
true endeavour of this deponents sight and knowledge to prevent all damage
which might happend to any of their ladeing, soe that hee is well assured
that the if any damage happened to any of her ladeing it was not through
any defect or fault of the shipp, nor of her Master and company, but only
by her being strayned with bearing over much sayle, which shee was then constreyned
to doe, to keepe the company of the sayd Convoyes or else to runne the hazard
of looseing both shipp and ladeing by being surprized by men of warr enemyes
of this nation, And hee saith he this deponent having bin a mariner these sixteene
or 17 yeares, and a Master of a shipp for about fower yeares of that tyme well knoweth
that shipps (though they be never soe staunch otherwise) yet if they be forced to beare
sayle more than ordinary to keepe company with Convoyes though the weather bee
not very tempestious but only such weather as the Willing Mynde mett with yet
