with the sayd shipp to the Barbados and there delivered their Cattell and salt
and reladed there for England and departed thense upon or about the twenty fowerth
of November 1656 in Company of the arlate shipp the
Gilbert (the arlate Croford Master) And saith that soone after their departure thense
videlicet the same night, a great storme happened by meanes whereof the mayne masts
was split with many of the sayles and severall of the shrowdes broken
soe that the shipp proved very leakie and her company had much a doe with
two pumpes to cleere her and keepe her from sinkeing, and the sayd
shippes Company seeing the leakienesse of the sayd shipp did by comand
of the Master throwe over board a parcell of ffustick and alsoe stave some
sugar Caske to romage and make way for the stopping of some of her leakes
which notwithstanding her leakes were soe many that the shipps company
were forced to pumpe continually to keepe her from sinkeing, whereupon
the sayd shipps Company advised the sayd Bartlett the Master to make
for the nearest Islands, there to stopp their leakes and preserve the sayd
shipp and her ladeing and their lives, And the Master thereupon seeing
what danger the sayd shipp was in by reason of her leakinesse
want of sayles and shrowdes and other necessaries did goe with his
skiff aboard the sayd Crofords shipp, but what discourse the sayd Croford
and hee had hee knoweth not for that hee this deponent continued aboard,
the Recovery, and the sayd Bartlett after a while returned aboard his
owne shipp the Recovery with a Burnett sayle which the sayd Croford
had sold or lent him, and the sayd Crofords mate and Carpenter and some others
of the sayd Crofords Company came abaord the Recovery with the sayd
Bartlett, and at the request of the sayd
and his precontest tooke a view of the sayd Recoveries Leakes which were
layed open by throwing over board of the sayd ffustick, and upon view of the sayd
shipp they did declare in presence and heareing of this deponent and his
precontest Zachary Welch and other passengers and Company of the sayd
shipp that they did heare the water come in at other leakes besides what
were discovered, and that the shipp was very leakie and in their Judgment
insufficient to proceede on her voyage to London without mending her
leakes and repayring her mast sayles and shrowdes, and thereupon advised
the sayd bartlett to beare up to some of the Leeward Islands before
hee was to farr gone from them or to that effect, And the sayd Crofords
men did upon the sayd view made by them give a testimony all under their
hands of the insufficiencie of the sayd shipp Recoverie to proceede for
London, and this deponent and the sayd Welch, and other passengers of the
sayd shipp and the sayd Tawley and others of the sayd shipps Company did sett
their hands as wittnesses of the sayd testimoniall, which being done the
sayd Crofords men went aboard their owne shipp againe, Whereupon the
sayd shipps Company seeing the leakiness of the sayd shipp Recoverie and
her want of sayles and rigging did move the sayd Bartlett to make for some
of the Leeward Islands according to the advice of the sayd Crofords men,
whereto hee would not consent, and thereupon the company and passengers
