at the instance of one (whose name hee knoweth not) that followes the
busines for the said Cox, which Cox hee hath knowne about foure
yeares and a halfe, but doth not know Norbrooke, and saith hee
favoureth the parties indifferently, And otherwise negatively.

To the second hee saith hee doth not knowe the name of the said shipp
out of which the said Cox was soe impressed as aforesaid, and
that hee this rendent was a common man in the Marston Moore

To the third hee saith the said Captaine Mings at the Barbadas the
said voyage pressed severall man out of other shipps, namely two
man out of Captaine Totties shipp, and otheres to the number of
tenn or twelve out of other shipps, the names whereof hee knoweth
not, and afterwards cleared five or sixe of them againe, and saith
hee saw the pressing of them and bringing of them aboard, but
hee doth not know the names of the men soe pressed, saving of two,
namely Mathais Tonelin and John hughesen, and saving the said Cox.

To the fourth hee saith that the said Captaine was going ashore
in his boate when hee soe called aboard. and pressed the said Cox,

the Marston Moore and entred himselfe into her service, and
acquainted the said Captaine of the said Cox as being in the said
shipp, and when the Captaine went ashoare showed him the
