de Morales tooke his keys and opened the chests of plate
that were there, being foure in number, and shewed
the same to this deponent and would have had this Deponent
to have taken the said keys, which he refused: But sayth
that some while after (on the same day of seizure) the
said Captain Lightfoot came board the said ship the Peahen
or Turkey, and taking notice of the said chestsm and the
same being opened, he caused the plate and pieces of eight, that
were in one of them to be taken out, and put into the other
three, and also caused a chest of plate that was in the hold
to be brought up, and soe sent them all foure aboard
his said frigot. And sayth that this Deponent and the said Captain
being returned into the frigot, the said Captain desired this Deponent
to cast up an account of the contents of the said foure chests
wherein he sayth were six piggs of plate, and severall bags
of pieces of eight, and severall pieces of wrought plate, and
that this Deponent by the markes of the weight that was upon
them, casting up the amount of the whole, found the piggs
to extend and amount to the value of nine thousand and
odde hundred pieces of eight, and the wrought plate, and pieces
of eight to amount unto between seaven and eight thousand
pieces of eight; besides he sayth there were severall Jewells
and pearles, which the said Captaine found in the sayd spanish
ship, and which he shewed to this Deponent, and acknowledged
that he had them from thence, And sayth that the sayd account
being soe made, the sayd Captain tooke the said six piggs of
plate, and put them into his counting house within his
Cabbin, and the said wrought plate and pieces of eight, he
the said Captaine put into two of the said chests, and put
the sayd two Chests into his Cabbin; And the said Jewells and
pearles he put into his counting house, one of the sayd Jewells
being a Ruby-hat band, and another of them a Rosarie of
one hundred and fifty beads of gold laid upon precious wood,
and linked togeather with a gold chaine, the said Rosarie
amounting in value to fifty pounds sterling or thereabouts
And further he cannot depose, saving there were also severall
hundred of pieces of eight, besides the predeposed, that
were in chests upon the Decks of the spanish ship, and
were plundered away by the Nightingales mariners./
