Rp. 3us

John Brand of Acton aged 44 yeeres
or thereabouts sworne and Examined

To the first and second articles of the said Allegation hee
saith that a while after Michaelmas 1658 the ship
the John whereof one Marriot was master and the ship
the Mary Rose whereof one John Cole was then
master did both lye at Anchor in Tinmouth haven
and many other ships the same time did there
ryde at Anchor some ahead, and some asterne
of the John and Mary Rose and most of the said
other ships did weigh and set saile out
of the said haven the same morning that the
John and Mary Rose weighed to set saile then
(but the particular day hee remembreth not) and some
of the said other ships weighed and set saile out
of the said haven before the John and Mary
Rose, and some after them and saith the said ship
John and Mary Rose weighed Anchor to saile thence about the
same time but the John hee saith was ahead of the
Mary Rose a little space and after the John had sailed
a little space directly forward shee sheered over to
the Southward, and the said ship Mary Rose sailing
directly forward the John sheering from the southward
againe toward the Northward came foule of the Mary
Rose as she was sailing in her direct Course and
the foot shrouds of the the John came foule of Boltsprit
of the Mary Rose and the Anchor of the Mary Rose catched
one of the Laniards of the maine shroud of the John The
Premisses hee deposeth being a foremast man of the
Mary Rose the said time and was an Eye witness
of the same, And further cannot depose to theise

To the 3rd 4th and 5th he saith that hee doth not knowe
that the Boate of the Mary Rose was towing her
when the John came foule of her as aforesaid, And saith
the Company of the Mary Rose did their Endeavour to
keepe cleare of the John, and never said (that hee
knoweth of) that they would not slacken their sailes or
let fall an Anchor, neither were they soe desired to doe by
the master or any of the Company of the John this deponent knoweth of
