nor pumpe=[?ha]tches nor pumpe=nayles on board
the sayd shipp then was at that present in use
and that there were then two pumpes kept constantly
going, And this deponent saith that according to the
sayd Crofords order the Company of the sayd shipp
did weigh their anchor, and stood off for the
Sea, untill such time as that the sayd Croford saw
the apparent danger the shipp and goods were in by
reason of his not knowing (as yet) where he was
and did therupon cause them to come to anchor againe and hee saith that afterwards were the gunns arlate
fired and shott off to have called some body to have
come to their releife; And he saith that this is the truth
of soe much as is conteyned in theise two articles concerning Aberdey and
that as the matter is therin deduced, it is mistaken
And further he cannot depose Saving that upon the
arlate Croford his order to weigh anchor and stand
off to Sea, and the Mariners acquainting him with
what provisions and necessaryes were wanting, they
the sayd Mariners proffered themselves willing and
ready to goe for Milford where they might be
accomodated with such things as they stood in extreame need
of, as pumpe=boxes and pumpe=leather, he the sayd
Croford swore a great oath, What showld he
doe at Milford where a pumpe box had not bin made
since Christ was borne./

To the sixth article he deposeth, that when Captaine Croford
would have sett sayle from Abderdee there were aboard
the sayd shipp, Mariners and passengers to the number of
55 or 56, and that there were but very small provisions
both of bread and beefe and fish for such a number and
(he saith) without doubt had the sayd shipp have sayled for
London and if shee had mett with contrary weather in her
course and had bin putt off to sea the sayd shipps Company
would have perished and famished, And he further
saith that the said Company did in her homeward voyage
indure great hardshipp, and were much pinched in their
allowance (of his certaine knowledge) during a great
part of the sayd homeward bound voyage every Mariner
had but three pound of bread for his allowance for
the space of tenne dayes And further he cannot

To the 7th and 8th articles he deposeth that whiles the sayd
shipp was at Aberdee some of her Mariners made a
boate of boards, wherof use was never made And he
saith that on or about the nineteenth day of January 1656,
one William Spencer a Pilott came aboard the said
shipp as she lay at Aberdee , and that the arlate Croford
did hire and order the sayd Spencer to conduct and carry
the sayd shipp to Pennarth, and that accordingly the
sayd shipp did arrive upon or about the 20th of January
1656 at Pennarth, and that presently upon the shipps
arrivall there and she being come to an anchor the sayd
Croford went ashoare And further he cannot depose.
