who pursued and followed the Indeavour and Mary, and the sayd Welch and his Companyes of
the Indeavour and Mary being gotten with their sayd shipps into the duke of Oldenburghs dominion
in the sayd River and suspecting that the danish vessells who followed them had a designe
to surprize them in the night tyme, endeavoured to have hawled their sayd vessells the
Endeavour and Mary in the night tyme on shoare in a Creeke in the duke of Oldenburghs dominion but were
hindered from soe doeing by some of the duke of Oldenburghs subiects whereupon
the next day (being in the moneth of July 1657) the sayd Welch with one Thomas
Cage his Coxen and fower others who rowed him went on shoare intending to gett leave
to drawe the sayd shipps on shoare, and presently after they were gotten a shoare certayne
of the companyes of the sayd danish smacks having gotten a shoare alsoe at a place
not farr distant and laid them selves in ambushado on shoare, seized the sayd
Captaine and the five men that were with him (this deponent and divers others of the Compa=
nyes both of the Indeavour and Mary being upon a deck in their vessells and seeing
them soe seize the sayd Captaine and his boates [XXX])and this being soe done
and the danes haveing seized alsoe the boate, they called out to the Companyes
of the Indeavour and Mary and sayd to this effect now you roagues will you
yeild your shipps, for you see wee have gotten your Captaine prisoner whereto the sayd shipps
Companyes replying and saying now, they would not deliver them, the danes answered
and sayd if they did not deliver them but that they happened to take them
they would give them noe quarter, whereupon the danes carries away the Captaine
and the five they had taken with him, and kept them prisoners and the Companyes of
the Indeavour and Mary departed with their sayd vessells and went about twenty myles
further up the River into a Creeke or River called the how[?u]d leading to
the Cittie of Oldenburgh and laye there a while whether the
Captaine and the five who were taken prisoners with him (having as they sayd
by the authority of the Ri[?p]e Master of Oldenburgh gotten their release from the
danes that had them prisoners) returned with their boate which was alsoe restored,
and came aboard the Indeavour and after the sayd Captaine was soe come aboard
hee presently tooke his trumpeter with him and went by land to Oldenburgh
to sollicite the duke or his Officers to graunt him protection for his sayd shipps and their
Companyes and himselfe, and the shipps in the meane tyme went up the river and lay about
a myle and a halfe from the Citty of Oldenburgh, whether the sayd Captaine and trumpeter returned
and told his Company that hee could procure noe protection from the duke of
Oldenburgh for his sayd shipps and in the meane tyme while the Captaine was soe absent the generall of the danes came in
person with his trumpeter and about four hundred men with him and two smacks
with two peeces of ordnance in them, and brought fower other peeces of ordnance which
they landed intending to plant them against the Endeavour and Mary, and then
(videlicet in the sayd moneth of July last) againe standing on shoare spake to the Companyes
of the Indeavour and Mary and required them to yeild their sayd shipps and threatened to give noe quarter to their companyes and to fyre the shipps if they refused and they
videlicet this deponent and others of them answered that they could not doe it without order of their Captaine who was then
absent, whereupon the sayd danish Generall sent his trumpeter with this
deponent to the sayd Captaine Welch and they mett him then coming from Oldenburgh
and the sayd Trumpeter did from the sayd danish Generall require the sayd Captaine
to dliver his sayd shipps the Indeavour and Mary and to bring them downe the River
to the sayd Generalls fleete at Leo and sayd that if hee refused
soe to doe the sayd Generall would burne them where they lay and that they should
never returne downe the River or to that effect whereto the sayd Captaine answered
and sayd that rather then they should bee taken by the generall of the sanes hee would
burne them himselfe , or to that effect and thereupon the sayd Captaine coming aboard
