come to the side of the shipp the arlate Croford and Company did
refuse to take it aboard for that the shipp was fully laden and soe full of goods
that shee could not with any conveniencie carrie more whereupon the sayd sugars
lay by the shipp side two dayes and a night and then the sayd Bellinger came him
selfe aboard and asked the shipps Company why the sayd eight hogsheads
of sugar were not taken aboard and some of the Company replyed in
presence of this deponent and others of the shipps company that the shipp was allready soe incumbered with
goods that they were faine to stowe their provisions and alsoe some goods betweene
decks and that therefore they could not take them in or to that effect
and told him that if they should take it a board they should clogg up their gunnes
soe that they could not make use of them if they were sett upon by an enymye
or if they mett with tempest at sea in their passage they must bee foreced to
heave them over board which notwithstanding the sayd Bellinger desyred
to speake with the Captaine the sayd Croford, and did speake with him, and
earnestly pressed him to take them aboard and told him hee had promised
him to carry them for him and the sayd Croford answered and sayd
hee the sayd bellinger should then have sent them sooner for his shipp was
soe full now that hee could not well take them in and that if hee did
take them and that any stormie weather came or that hee should meete
with an enymye hee must bee forced to heave them over board to cleere
his gunnes for his necessary defence or in case of tempest to lighten his
shipp they being last laden and next hand and easiest to be come at, to preserve
his shipp and the rest of his ladeing and the sayd Bellinger answered
and sayd lett them bee taken aboard and if yow bee by storme or enymyes
necessitated to heave thm overboard I will beare the dammage or words
to that effect And this discourse happened upon the deck and upon the
quarter deck of the sayd shipp in presence of this deponent and his Contests
Woodfall and Ceeley and of Nicholas Allen John Gillett William Jepson
and others of the sayd shipps Company, upon which promise of the sayd
Bellinger the sayd eight hogsheads were taken aboard and stowed betweene
decks abaft the mast this hee knoweth for that hee helped alsoe to stowe
the sayd hogsheads And further hee cannot depose/.

To the 6th 7th and 8th hee saith that the sayd eight hogsheads being
upon the promise and condition aforesayd shipped aboard the Gilbert shee
departed therewith from the Barbados bound for London and in her course
thither mett with extreame tempestious weather which began upon Christmas
Eve at night Anno 1656 and continmued for three or fower dayes
after with exceeding great violence in soe much that the shipp and their lives
and ladeing would perish and thereupon by advise of the Master and his
Mates and other the officers of the sayd shipp it was concluded that the shipp must of
necessitie be lightned by casting over board some of the goods to preserve
the rest and their lives, whereupon the sayd eight hogsheads of sugar being
last laden and neerest hand to come by were throwne over board and they
being cleered other goods as fustick and Cotton and other sugars which were alsoe
stowed betweene decks were alsoe throwne overboard for the necessary preservation
of the shipp and the rest of her ladeing and the lives of her Company and passengers
