for England a passenger in her and saith that for the tyme hee knew the sayd
shipp lyeing there takeing in her ladeing, shee was in this deponents Judgment
a very able vessell and sufficiently tight and staunch for the performance
of her voyage from the Barbados to London and did take in little water and
noe more than usually shipps doe which lye in that hott Country And the sayd
shipp having taken in her ladeing ame out from Spikes Bay therewith
bound for England about the fifteenth day of the sayd moneth of July
1657 and was then of this deponents sight and observation tight and staunch and
noe waye leake more than ordinarily shipps are, and soe as that her pumpe

board her and alsoe the shipps company did greatly feare that the sayd shipp and
her lading and Company would have perished in the sea by the violence thereof
and the furie of the winde was soe great that it kept the sayd shipp under
water on the starrboard side most part of the sayd storme by meanes whereof
the shipp tooke in very much water into her hold and (as this
deponent heard the sea men saye) the seames of the shipp by her workeing

that the shipps Master and Company by reason of the violence of the sayd storme
and the shipps lyeing under water on the starr board side could
not make use of the pumpes to cleere her of the water receaved till the
sayd storme was over and then hee well knoweth the Master and Mariners
