their course for Virginia the storme still continued with great furie
and the sea wrought exceeding high by reason of the forcible winde

cloathes and bedds aboard provided for the use of the servants of the sayd Jefferies
and Lewellin and alsoe what goods the sayd Moulson had aboard for his
owne Accompt, and the storme continued with soe great violense
that the shipps Company and the servants or passengers expected every
moment that the shipp would sinke, and the Carpenter
or his mate and some others of the passengers and of the Mariners, came
up from betweene decks and sayd the shipp was sinkeing, and this
deponent well knoweth that the sayd shipp was soe bruised and shaken
with the sayd tempest that her forechaynes were washed away and part
of her sheathing, and her mayne chaynes and her bulke heads and
some of her false bonds and other bonds, and some of her standers gave way
and started and her mayne knoll gave way from the stemme, and other
