only to have what is due for freight And further saving his foregoeing
deposition hee cannot depose, but referreth him selfe to the Charterparty in this

To the 7th article hee saith hee cannot of his owne certeyne knowledge depose
thereto having never loaded any goods sent out of fflanders to bee shipped for
any of the places arlate But hath heard severall Masters of Shipps (who
have affirmed that they have at dover and other English Ports laden
goods sent out of fflanders thither and transported to Saint Lucar and other
the places arlate) saye that they have receaved a ryall Averidge upon every [ducket]
freight, which average hath bin (as they affirmed) disposed by the masters of the sayd
shipps and their Companyes and not to any of the Owners And further
to this article hee cannot depose./

To the last hee saith his foregoeing deposition is true./

To the Interrogatories./ [CENTRE HEADING]

To the first hee saith hee was lately Captaine of the Success afore
sayd and went on voyage as aforesayd with the sayd shipp
from Portugall to the Brazeele and thence back to Portugall
and was freighted by Charterparty for the sayd voyage by Gasper
da Musquaoto and Company Portugueses and saith that the average
expressed by Charterparty was eighty Rees upon a Roove, and to the
best of his remembrance a hundred Rees a Roove upon other rooves
and as is predeposed and saith the sayd Bushell one of˺ his owners know thereof and the freighter
John Bushell one of the Owners was present at the makeing of the Charter=
Party And saith that upon this deponents returne from Brazeele to

being then in some danger of his life by by reason of the warr then
betwixt Portugall and England and being threatned by Prince Rupert who
was then at LIsbone to bee cast into prison hee thereupon fledd thence
and and gott on board Generall Blake who laye then neere Lisbone, and
by that meanes the Averidge soe much as by reason of the
troubles was gotten came to the hands of the sayd Bushell where
it still rests but this deponent never allowed or consented to the owners
having any part thereof well knowing it to bee due to him by Charterparty
in manner aforesayd And further to this Interrogatorie hee cannot answere/

To the 2 hee saith that seamen have somwhat greater wages for
a voyage to Brazeele then they have for other ordinary voyages
which is allowed them by the reason of the danger they goe
by the greate heate and sicklinesse of that Country and danger of surp[rizall]
And as touching the Averidge hee saith it belongeth to the Master and
Company as aforesayd by Charterparty and not to the Owners
towards Weare and teare of their shipps And saith hee beleeveth that
a shipp is more preiudiced in a moneth being in Brazeele than by
reason of the heate of the Countrey, and wormes then shee would
bee in three or fower moneths in a voyage from England to ffrance, [soe that]
5hee beleeveth the Owners doe therefore contract for soe much the greater freight
And further hee cannot answere,/
