Thomas Anneley [SIGNATURE, RH SIDE]


The 20th of ffebruary 1657:

Examined on the sayd allegation/

Rp. 2

Beniamin Denning of Ratcliff in the parish of Stepney
and County of Middlesex Mariner aged 27 yeares or thereabouts a
wittnesse sworne and examined saith and deposeth as followeth videlicet/

To the first and second articles of the sayd allegation hee saith that in the
Moneth of November 1654 there came a hundred and odd pipes of wine (but
the odd number hee remembreth not) which wines were sent all upon one day (and
by the arlate Gowen Painter (as hee beleeveth) to be stowed aboard the shipp the
Industrie and there being sich a great quantitie sent togeather and a great many
of them betweene decks and the upper deck as full alsoe as they could bee sett with
Conveniencie of leaving roome to worke in the stoweing of them the arlate
Sydrack Blake and company knowing that soe many being brought aboard
together they lay in great danger of being staved if not speedily stowed did cause
his Company to worke extreame hard day and night and heave out the ballast to
make roome to stowe the sayd wines and by such their extraordinary paines
and labour did not only heave out the sayd ballast but alsoe stowe all the sayd hundred and odd pipes of wine in a day
and a nights tyme whereas the greatest quantitie of wine which is usually stowed
aboard a shipp in one day is not above fiftie or sixty pipes, by meanes of
which haste and speede that was made to stowe the sayd wines (soe many being
brought aboard at one tyme) to prevent the danger of their being staved. hee beleeveth
there was some losse of tonnage in the stoweing of them it not being possible
with such speede to stowe them to the best advantage of tonnage of the sayd shipp
And further to these articles hee cannot depose having lost his papers and noates
concerning the sayd voyage

To the 2 article hee saith that hee this deponent being boatswaine of her the voyage in
question and having gone a former voyage in her knoweth that the sayd shipp
the Industrie was of the burthen of two hundred tonnes and upwards and
did that former voyage carrie about two hundred tonnes of oyle and salt
from Cadiz to the Canaries And saith that the voyage in question the sayd
shipp the Industry beside the wines shee brought home for the sayd Page and
others brought home the quantitie of at least two tonnes in presents or Regalias
but whether without freight or noe hee knoweth not, nor knoweth hee experimentally the difference of
the Mallega and Canary tonnage having never bin a voyage to Mallega but hath
heard other seamen who have made voyage to both places saye that the Mallega tonnage
is bigger than the Canarie tonnage, two butts at Mallega being reckoned to a tonne
each but conteyning one hundred and twenty gallons, and the tonnage of the Canaries
hee this deponent knoweth is only two pipes to a tonne each pipe conteyning aonly a hundred and
twelve gallons at the most And hee verily beleeveth that in case the Industrie did bring
home lesse tonnage then shee ought by agreement to have brought, the sayd hurryeing
and disorderly putting the sayd hundred and odd pipes aboard in manner
