The same day

Examined on the sayd article/

Rp. 7

Thomas Lovell of the precinct of Saint Katherine neere the Tower
of London Waterman aged fifty three yeares or thereabouts a
wittnesse sworne and examined saith and deposeth as followeth videlicet./

To the first article hee saith that about fower yeares since (the tyme more certainly
hee doth not remember) there was a petition preferred by the Inhabitants of the precinct
of Saint Katherines (to which petition as this deponent remembreth hee amongst others of
the Inhabitants of the sayd precinct sett his hand (against the arlate Jenkin
Ellis to the effect arlate to the then Judges of this Court who upon debateing
the busines in presence of the sayd Ellis did make an order therein to the effect
arlate and monished the sayd Ellis to yeild obedience thereto but for certainty
as touching the date and effect of the sayd order hee refereth him selfe to the sayd
Registry of this Court and further to this article hee cannot depose/

To the 2 and 3 articles hee saith that hee this deponent hath bin a waterman
and an Inhabitant of the precinct of Saint Katherine for those thirty yeares last past
and upwards and hath during that tyme usually plyed with his wherry at
Saint Catherines stayres and other places neere thereabouts and knoweth that the arlate
Jenkin Ellis since the foresayd order made and contrary to the same hath for
his owne private gaine enterteyned and received divers tymes severall
vessells dutch ffrench and other vessells to the number of five or sixe at a tyme at
the least and some tymes eight or tenn at a tyme to lye a brest at one and the
same tyme at and neere his wharfe betweene Saint Catherines stayres and
Saint Catherines dock whose companyes have all of them usually had made their roade
and passage from on board their vessells to shoare and from shoare to their
vessells through the sayd Ellis his howse and did usually lye soe neere
shoare that neither lighter nor wherry could passe betweene shoare and them
to the great annoyance of the neighbours living neere who habe had some
of them their wash houses and other places of convenience belonging to them
and the pyles of their wharfes broken downe by the sayd vessells lyeing soe
neere them and have bin alsoe thereby debarred of their iust liberty of shipping
off or takeing in any goods on their wharfes And the watermen who plye at
Saint Catherines Stayres and places neere thereto have by such their soe lyeing bin
very much damnified by being hindered from their roades where they
used to laye their boates for safety and have sometymes had their boates splitt
and sunke by the sayd vessells And this deponent having had his boate sunke
by the sayd vessells did complayne to the Companyes of the sayd vessells how
much hee and others were damnified by their lyeing there soe many a brest
and soe neere shoare and the Companyes of the sayd vessells have answered
this deponent and others who were in like manner damnified by them and sayd that they
they would lye there for they paid halfe a Crowne a weeke a vessell for
their lyeing there to Jenkin Ellis the shoemaker (meaning Jenkin Ellis
arlate) and therefore they would lye there or to that effect And saith that by such
their lyeing soe many a brest there and soe close to shoare the watermen not being
able to passe betwixt shoare and them and are frequently forced to rowe out
into the hart and strength of the tyde in the River of Thames with their wherries
and beate before hee could come to shoare to land their fayres or such goods as
