and saith the sayd shipp safely arrived with the Tobaccoes laden a board her
at the Bermudas, at Virginia and there shee took in at the River of Nansemumme in the
moneths and tyme arlate severall other quantities of Tobaccoe amounting
to a great great quantitie and departed therewith about the latter end of January 1655 bound
for London aforesayd the port of her discharge And further to these articles hee
cannot depose knowing not by whose order or for whose Account the sayd
Tobaccoes were laden or to whome they were consigned but saith they were
to be delivered at London./

To the 3: 4th 5th and 6th articles of the sayd allegaton hee saith the sayd
shipp having taken in the sayd Tobaccoes both at Bermudas and Virginia
departed therewith out of James River in Virginia about the latter end
of January 1655 bound for London and saith that about fower dayes
after and upon or about the first of February last the sayd shipp was
surprized with a very violent storme and tempest which continued for
the space of about fower days togeather and the violence thereof was soe
great that the sayd shipp tooke in great seas which raked her fore and aft
and staved her long boate and brake it to peeces and brake the heads of
her Rudder short off and brake the Iron worke of it soo that the sayd Rudder
was in great danger to bee wholly torne off and carried away from the
sayd shipp by violence of the sayd storme, and alsoe brake downe the
waste of the sayd shipp on both sides, and some of her tymbers in soo
much that the water was almost continually upon the shipps deck and
much of it rann downe in to hold and among the sayd Tobaccoes and in to
other parts of the sayd shipp and could not be prevented from soe doeing
by the Master and Company of the sayd shipp though they used all possible
indeavour to prevent the same and the sayd shipp and ladeing and all her
company by violence of the sayd storme were in great danger to bee
cast away and sinke in the sea And saith the sayd Master and Company
did cause men to be hung over the sayd shipps sides in roapes to
worke and fasten the Rudder of the sayd shipp for as to bring her to
her steerage and had their work broken by the storm and were in great
hazard of their lives in soe doeing, and at length did make the same continue
fast and brought her to her steerage And saith the sayd Master and Company
during the sayd Storme wrought day and night by turnes at the chayne pumps
and did their utmost endeavour to preserve the sayd tobaccoes from dammage
and the sayd shipp from sinkeing, and did by Gods mercie and blessing
upon their labour preserve the sayd shipp from sinking And further
to these articles he cannot depose/

To the 7th hee saith the sayd first storme being with great perill and
much harme done as aforesayd passed over, the sayd shipp and ladeing
was in her course for London againe surprized with a second storme which
happened about the 9th of February aforesayd and continued with great
violence to the twelveth, and with some smale abatement about till the sixteenth
of the same and the sayd shipp being soe hurt and her [?w]asts and tymbers
and Rudder broken, though they were in some measure amended, videlicet as well as for the
present they could bee got they were some of them by violence of the sayd
second storme (the deck being seldome cleere of water) much hurt and
preiudiced soe that the water ran into the shipps hold and amongt the sayd
Tobaccoes not withstanding all the endeavour the Master and company did
