for the sayd shipp as pumpe leather and pumpe
boxes, and therfore entreated the sayd Croford to goe
first for Milford to provide such necessaries and that
then they would willingly goe for London, And he saith
that the sayd Croford made answeare thereunto in this
deponents hearing that a pumpe box was never made
there (meaning Milford) since Christ was borne
and what showld he doe there, And he deposeth that
(as he beleiveth in his conscience) had the sayd shipp
ventured to have gone from Aberdee to London in that
said condition she then was in, she and her lading and
Company would all have perisht, And further
he cannot depose./

To the sixth he deposeth that when the sayd shipp was at
Aberdee there were aboard her, Mariners and passengers
to the number of (about) 55 persons, and that there was
not then (quite) forty pounds of bread aboard the sayd
shipp, and a little beefe or fish, and that in the
sayd homeward bound voyage her company did indure
much hard shipp and were much pinched in their
allowance, and that during a great part of the sayd
homeward voyage every mariner had but three pound
of bread for his allowance for the whole space of
tenn dayes The premisses he deposeth of his owne said
knowledge being one of the sayd shipps Mariners in her
homeward voyage as he hath predeposed And further he
cannot depose./

Aberdee the mariners of the shipp (gaving noe boate to goe

but there was noe use thereof, for that iust as she was
finisht the shipps Company descryed (on or about the
19th of January 1656) at night a boate making toward
the sayd shipp, and that in the sayd boate was the arlate
William Spencer a pylott, who by the order and direction
of the sayd Captaine Croford did the next morning conduct and carry the
sayd shipp to Pennarth, and that as soone as the sayd shipp
arrived there at Pennarth the sayd Croford went ashoare
there And further he cannot depose./

To the nineth he cannot depose Saving that he well knoweth that
the arlate Cobb, Upson, Woodfall and Nicholls did goe
ashoare at Pennarth;

To the tenth he deposeth that the shipp arlate did lye at
Pennarth from about the 20th of January 1656 to the 24th
day of the same month and that during all that time the
sayd Croford did never come aboard her till the sayd 24th
and that then he brought with him the arlate Nicholas

and directions of the sayd Croford) the shipp that day to Kingsroade
