they may one day with another tier and steive and eight baggs a day as he hath
predeposed; and not more as he beleiveth And otherwise he cannot depose.
To the fifteenth and sixteenth. Interrogatories he saith he cánnot depose, being
he was not in the sayd shipp, nor in the voyage in question nor att Cyprus
or Zant within the tyme and tymes Interrate

Repeated before the two Judges
in Court

Repeated before Doctor Godolphin/



The same day. [CENTRE HEADING]

Examined upon the said allegation.


Isaac Woodgreene of Wapping in the County of Middlesex Mariner
aged 38 yeares or thereabouts sworne and examined deposeth
and saith as followeth. videlicet.

To the third Article of the sayd allegation This deponent saith. That he saw the arlate
shipp the Thomas Bonadventure att Ciprus the voyage in question (he this
deponent being there att the same tyme Captaine and Commander of the
African frigot) and saith the sayd shipp Thomas Bonadventure was of the
burthen of two hundred and eighty tonnes or thereabouts; and shee att that
tyme, as he was then informed had about four and forty men on board her.
And otherwise he cannot depose.

To the fourth Article he saith that having bene twice att Ciprus hee hath observed
and knoweth it to be true, that woolls there are putt in very great baggs
and are difficult to stow. and by what he hath seene and observed he doth
Judge that the receyving on board and steeving of eight of those baggs a day
one day with another in said a vessell as the Thomas Bonadventure is a
sufficient imployment for forty four men especially after such shipp hath
taken in a considerable number of such baggs, and that a greater number
of baggs cannot nor are ordinarily taken in and steeved in such a shipp by
the day one day with another than as aforesaid. And further he cannot depose

To the seventh Article of the sayd allegation this deponent saith that he was att Ciprus with
his foresayd frigot in the month of May. 1652. att which tyme the arlate Captaine
Hughes was also there with his shipp Thomas Bonadventure. And this deponent
having receyved by lading there was ready to depart from thense about the twentyeth day of
the sayd month, and the sayd Captaine Hughes expressed his earnest desire to depart
thence in Company with this deponent; but the said Captaine Hughes his shipp being
not then fully laden he this deponent could not stay for him. but did request
him the he might safely come along with and had XXX to stay for the Commander
the Command of Captaine XX XXXXX And upon this occasion being in Company of
the arlate Roger ffooke and Richard Chowne, and of the sayd Captaine Hughes
on shoare discourse being had backing the Thomas Bonadventure and the sayd
convoy under Captaine XXXXXX the sayd ffooke and Chowne in this deponents heaving did advise
and order the sayd Captaine Hughes to stay for the sayd convoy and had along
in Company therewith; And the sayd ffooke then enforced his sayd advise and order
saying that the sayd shipp Thomas Bondadventure had more goods in her and
was richer than her freighters thought her to be, adding more over that
in case he the sayd Hughes should and did presume to depart without the Convoy and
any losse thereby should befall his shipp and lading he the sayd Hughes should
and would be lyable, and to make good the same and should or would be forced
so to doe if he were worth so much or to that purpose, And otherwise he
cannot depose saving that the premisses happened a day or two before his
this deponents departure from Ciprus, which was about the twentyeth day of
may the tyme he more particularly att present came att hath not.

To the 10th article saith that in regard of the westerly winds that usually are upon
those seas the passage from Zant Cyprus to the streights and so for England
so long and tedious, so as for the provision of victuall and first righter it is
