at Bengall sent two ships of warr one having 32 peeces of
Ordnance, and the other about 14: very strongly mannd
to Bengall to seize upon the hopewell, which they
did accordingly in a hostile and Trecherous manner
and fetched most of the goods that were ashore,
and not bartered away, aboard the said men of warr,
and carried the same together with the hopewell and
all her Negroes and Teeth and what she had on board her, to Angola, and
utterly dispoyled and deprived the said Jenkin[?s] and Company
of both of the said said ship and Lading, to their great
losse and damage and overthrowe of the voyage: which
hee knoweth being on board the said ship hopewell
when shee was seized, and carried in her to Angola
where hee, and all the said Ships Company were
turned ashore to shift for themselves, as well as they
could and further cannot depose./:

To the 5th hee saith that hee verily beleeveth that the said Outward Lading carried in the said ship to Bengall
would there have produced and procured above six
hundred Negroes, And further cannot depose to this

To the 6th hee saith hee cannot depose not being able
to Estimate the worth of the said ship./.

To the 7th hee saith that both the said Governour of
Bengall and the Governour of Angola are Portugall[?s]
or of some place in the Dominions of the King of Portugall and his Subjects and were put in
Governours there by order of the said King of Portugall
as this Deponent hath credibly heard and verily beleeveth
and saith that the said Governour[?s] did well knowe
that the said ship hopewell and her Goods did belong
to English men and subjects of this Commonwealth
of England, And saith that there was the said time
and alsoe before, and ever since Peace and Amity
betweene England and Portugall./.

To the 8th and 9th hee saith that the said Jenkins and Company
the Owners of the said ship and Lading have sustained very
Great losse and dammage by the said unjust seizure of the
said ship, but howe much hee cannot Estimate. And
further saving as aforesaid deposeth not, saving that
Bengall and Angola are in the Dominion of the King of
