of the steeving geere are burst and other inconveniencies happen
to the great retarding of the worke, so as he saith that ordinarily
the number of men interrate in a vessell of the tonnage interro=
gate may receyve on board and steeve about eight baggs a day
one day with another, And otherwise he cannot depose.

To the 15th he saith that on the say interrate there was not roome in the
sayd shipp to have receyved the number of baggs interrate without
steeving, for he saith there was not roome enough safely to have
layd att that tyme one bagg without steeving. And otherwise
he cannot depose.

To the 16th he saith that when the Thomas Bonadventure ćame from Ciprus
shee could not have ćarryed thirty tonnes of cotton woolls more than were
laden in her, howbeit when she ćame to Zant she might and did
receyve thirty tonnes of Currants; the reason of which difference is
from the different qualities of the sayd merchandizes bećause Currants may
safely and well be stowed any where in the hold and in the traveway of
woolls, but the sayd traveway was not halfe long enough to receive such
a quantity of woolls in regard of the great length of the sackes, and
for that Currants are laden without steeving which wools cannot
safely be, neyther ćan be steeved without a sufficient trave way. And
otherwise saving that the sayd Currants were in butts he ćannot depose.

Examined upon the sayd Allegation


Gregorie Creyk of Marton in the County of Yorke merćhant,
aged twenty four yeares or thereabouts a witnes produced
sworne and examined deposed and saith as followeth videlicet.

To the first and second Articles of the sayd allegation, This deponent saith, That the arlate
shipp The Thomas Bonadventure arrived att Ciprus from Scanderon
the voyage in question, after which her arrivall there
were laden on board her a great quantity of Cotton woolls by the allegat
Roger ffooke English Consull there, of the certayne knowledge
of this deponent, who was then att Ciprus (as he had bene for about four
yeares before) and lived and lodged in one and the same howse with the
sayd Consull, and saw the sayd woolls weighted. but the number of the
baggs hee remembreth not. And the greatest part of the sayd woolls
were, as he then heard, for the freighters of the sayd shipp, and
one smaller parcell was as he likewise heard, for one Mr Rich of London.
And otherwise he cannot depose.

To the 3. and 4th articles of the sayd allegation he saith that the sayd shipp the Thomas
Bonadventure was in this deponents Judgment of the burthen of about
two hundred and seventy, or two hundred and eighty tonnes, and had
about the number of men arlate in her the tyme aforesayd, which
number of men, by what he hath seene, observed and heard, during his
sayd four yeares abode att Ciprus, may receyve, and steeve upon a shipp
of such tonnage, about eight or att most nyne baggs a day one day with another
from the first beginning of her steeving till she have recyved her full
Cargo, and not more, the reason whereof he hath observed to be partly the greatnes
of the baggs and their bulke and weight, which renders them
difficult to mannage and steeve, and partly the extraordinary labour that
still encreases as the shipp fills, so as the greater quantity of goods a
shipp hath in her, the more and greater is the labour and difficulty of steeving
wools upon her. And soe much he hath well seene and observed as
aforesayd. And othewise cannot depose/
