sound in order to the better preservation of the sayd ship and ladeing and
there stayed only two dayes and then came thense in Company of two English men
of warr which lay in Plymouth sound, and kept then company a while
untill they mett with some English shipps Merchant men bound some
for Rochell others for Nantes and Croysick in ffrance and sayled in
their Company about thirty leagues, and soe gott cleere of the Brest men of
warr and arrived safe with the Sea fflower and her ladeing at Saint Sebastians
this hee deposeth being one of the Company of the Sea fflower videlicet
the Gunner of her and an eye and eare wittnesse of the premisses, and

the sayd Imbargoe and the sayd Gefford replyed and sayd they should
not neede to feare any such thing as an Imbargoe, for hee had news
out of England that there was no feare of any difference betwixt

the sayd Gefford had laden about three or fower and twenty tonne of Iron
abord the Sea fflower, shee staying to take in more (which as the

laden aboard her) was seized, and the sayd three or fower and twenty
tonns of Iron soe laden aboard her which was all her ladeing shee had
