The 8th of March 1655 [CENTRE HEADING]

The claime of Peter Reynold for}
his goods in the Hare of the ffeilds.}

Examined upon an allegation made yesterday in the
acts of Court.


[XXX. dt.]

William Bowridge of London Marchant
aged 30 yeeres or thereabouts sworne and examined

To the said allegation hee saith and deposeth that hee well knoweth the
producent Peter Reynolds and hath so donne for theise three yeeres last or
thereabouts, and saith that about three yeeres since hee the said Peter
came to Cadiz in Spaine, and there setled as a dutch factor and a
subject of the States of the united Netherlands; and for such and a native
of Holland hee the said Peter was there commonly accompted and reputed
and saith hee continued there for all the time afterwards that this
deponent did, who came thence about 8 monethes since and left the said
Peter there, where hee beleeveth hee is at present resident, and that
there the said Peter lived and resided as a factor and marchant stranger
and not as a Spaniard or Subject of Spaine, and did not enjoy the
priviledge of a Subject or native of Spaine, but was priviledged as
a Hollander, and then the Hollanders are there free from payment of many taxes and impositions
which the Spaniards and subject unto; besides hee
the said Peter in the absence of the Consul of the Hollanders, did as
a Hollander supplie the place of Consulship for that nation, and
was and (as hee beleeveth still) is a batchelour and saith the English
marchants and factors there enjoyed the like priviledges as the Hollanders
did till the last differences betwixt England and Spaine, upon which
difference the English marchants and factors their goods were seized, but
and so hee conceiveth the said Reynolds goods would be as being in
hollander if there should happen the like difference betwixt Spaine
and holland. The premisses touching the said Reynolds hee deposeth
and knoweth, for that hee this deponent was there alsoe resident and
well acquainted with the said Peter Reynolds and otherwise hee
cannot depose.



The same day [CENTRE HEADING]

examined upon the foresaid allegation


John Wilkey of the parish of Saint Stephens in
Walbrooke marchant aged 31 yeeres or thereabouts sworne
and examined.

To the said allegation hee saith and deposeth that hee well knoweth
the producent Peter Reynolds, and hath so donne ever since the
comming of him the said Peter to Cadiz which was about three yeeres
since, at which time this deponent was there residant and
continued there till about seven monethes since that hee came
thense by occasion of the troubles betwixt England and Spaine, by
meanes whereof the spaniards seized the goods and estates of the English
marchants and factors there. and saith the said Peter after such his
first comming continued there all the time after till the comming
away thense of this deponent who left him there, and there hee beleeveth
hee as in present. and further that the said Peter from time to time
