sayd shipps Company proceeded in order thereto to fetch aboard
and did fetch aboard one Anchor but lett the sayd ship ride by the other
without heaving it a pick as the Master in this deponents presence gave order
they should, and the sayd Master and Merchants and this deponent coming
within a short tyme after on board, the Master was offended with the foresayd
Nathaniell hutchinson that hee being his cheife mate had not caused
the Anchor to bee heaved a pick according to order, and some angrie
words passing betweene them the sayd hutchinson went downe betweene
decks and refused to doe his duty and the Master commanding
the Company to weight Anchor they refused to weigh anchor and
sayd they would have fresh victualls and fresh bread
first or to that effect, when
as in deede there was of this deponents knowledge having the
oversight thereof noe want of victualls or bread on board,

with were by the Merchants eaten in the sayd shipps Cabin
that night and noe fault found therewith by them, and the rest

to certaine Greekes boatmen who were alsoe to attend the sayd
shipp to the Morea, and fresh victualls provided for the sayd
Companyes suppers where upon with much persuasions used
by the Merchants and promises that they should have fresh bread when

Company of her to weigh Anchor shee being then bound from
thense to Argustoll in the Island of Zephania and the sayd Company
or the greater part of them and especially the
sayd dymock, Nock Godden Brooke denbie parties in this suite
did refuse to way Anchor unlesse they mighte bee paid two
or three moneths pay whereupon the Master perceiving their
obstinacie and disobedience to the end that the sayd voyage to the
Argustoll might not bee frustrated did cause this deponent to pay
the sayd shipps Company two moneths pay or thereabouts which
they gaving receaved they and not before weighed anchor, and hee
saith that the plaintiffs in this cause were all active, and assisting
in the refuseing to weigh
Anchor the severall tymes aforesayd And further to this article
