amount unto tenne pounds sterling, or neere thereabouts.
This hee knoweth being Gunner of the said ship the Warewell
the said time, and further cannot depose./

To the 6th hee saith that by reason of the said bilging the

Labourers and workmen in haleing her to shore and

the Warewell was bilged did as this deponent verily beleeveth

To the 10th and 11th hee saith the said Anchor belonging to the said
Dutch ship. and whereupon the said ship the Warewell was (as
hee verily beleeveth) bilged as aforesaid was case and did
lye in a very Convenient Place for ships birthes, and saith
that Masters of shipps doe not use to cast their Anchors in such
places. neither ought they soe to doe, by the Custome
used and observed in the River of Thames, and are by the Lawes
