To the last hee saith his foregoeing deposition is true.

To the Interrogatories. [CENTRE HEADING]

To the first hee answereth and saith that the names of his respective
owners with their shares and habitations are as followeth videlicet the said
Warren hugeson of dover in England subiect of this Commonwealth owner
of a fourth par, Jacob Bourmans of Middleborow, owner of a fourth
part, Raynier Martinson of the same owner of another fourth part
and Jacob Lievveson of the same owner alsoe of a fourth part, which last three
persons hee saith are subiects of the Lords States of the United Netherlands
And that hee this examinate is [?one] part owner thereof, And it
is donne as required.

To the second hee answereth that the shipp the ffortune at the time
of the said seizure was of the burthen of sixtie tonnes or thereabouts,
And was with her tackle and furniture then well worth the summe of
one hundred and twenty pounds sterling at the least in his estimation,
and hee beleeveth his owners would then have given more money,
then have lost her. And saith that hee is soe well knowne and esteemed
at fflushing that hee could long since have bin put master of another shipp,
since the ffortune was soe seized, if hee would have left her and his
owners to have looked after it, which hee knoweth hee ought not to doe
And saith that after his comming home after the said seizure hee was
by some of his said owners and others sent to [?Sluce] to buy another vessell
of which hee was to goe master, and had agreed for her when the [?meanes]
came that the ffortune was found at Wivenhoe, upon which his said owners
of Middleborow would needs have him come over to looke after her, and
therefore hee saith hee need not violate his oath and dorsweare himselfe
(which hee abhores to doe) for want of a shipp to goe master of, as in this
Interrogatorie is uncharitably intimated. And further answereth not.

To the third hee answerth that the said shipp had noe guns or defence
at all, shee being but a hoy, and having noe other company than this deponent
and one man more and a boy, and saith the said ketch had the said
English colours abroad when this deponent first descried her, and that was
the reason that hee tooke her to be the dover Packet boate, and with the
same colours shee ranne aboard him, and under them her men came aboard
the ffortune, And saith her company had noe reason to feare being taken
by the ffortune, being soe inconsiderable a boate and without materialls
for offence or defence, but it was through fraud that they spreas those
colours, to [?XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX to] deceive this deponent and others, such being as hee saith their
practize, for hee saith that having sent away his vessell as aforesaid
they having this deponent aboard to set him ashore, comming neere Marget
and seeing a frigot come off from Marget, they skulked amongest
some ffishermen that were there fishing, and least the said frigot should
perceive them to be Capers and hale them, and understand how they
seized the vessells of English and dutch by Swedish commission[?s] under English
colours, they hung up severall mackerells in their tackle (it being
mackerell time) as the ffisher men did, and soe passing for a fishing
boate, the frigot passed by without examining them, and shortly they set
this deponent there ashore, And further answereth not saving as aforesaid.

To the fourth hee saith that the ffortune was in his esteeme about halfe
a dutch mile from the South end of the Goodwin sand, and about two dutch
miles from the English shore when shee was soe seized, being much neerer
