Robert Smith de Greenwitch Nauta annos agens
19 aut circiter testis in hac causa productus et

Ad j.um arlum dicta Allonis dicit that the arlate John Absolan
Anthony Deane, Mr Strange and Nathaniel Butler and Company
were the time arlate and before, the true and lawfull owners
of the arlate ship the Swanne and her tackle apparrell
and furniture and soe Comonly accounted to be, which hee
deposeth for that hee belonged to the said ship about a yeere
before shee was bilged as hereafter is mentioned./

Ad 2. 3. 4. et 5 arlos dicit that about a fortnight before his Sacred
Majestyes happy returne to this City (the time other=
wise hee doth not remember) the said Ship Swanne then
lying in Tinmouth haven weighed to come out thence
with a lading of Coales for London. and saith a ship
of Brighthampson whereof one Nicholas Payne was master
came next after the said ship Swanne, and coming nere
unto her, and there being a fflemish hoy ahead of the Seanne
soe that her Company durst not make more saile for feare
of being foule of her, the Mate of the said Ship Swanne
called out three times to the said Paine and Company to lower their
sailes, saying that if they did not they would be foule of the
Swanne or to that effect, and the said Paine made answer
that hee would warrant them hee would not be foule of
her, and would not cause his sailes to be lowered, but Imediately
after withall his sailes full at the turning of the bill point becalming the Swan runne his ships boultspritt into
the middle of the Swanns mizen shrouds, and thereupon
the Company of the Swanne (whereof this deponent was then one)
dropped an Anchor, and vered the Cable as much as they
durst for touching the ground but the said Paynes ship
made soe fast upon the Swanne withall her sailes full (hee
not causing them at all to be lowred) that shee forced the same
[?howe] soe that it could not nor did bring the SWan
up untill shee was runne aground by the said Paynes ship
and saith that the said Paine had roome enough to have
gone on either side of the SWanne, which hee had done or had
caused his sailes to be lowred hee would not (in all probability
and likelihood and as hee verily beleeveth) have bin fouled
of the SWanne, And the said ship Wanne being soe put a
ground by meanes of the said Paynes shipp runing foule of
her and dragging home her Anchor as aforesaid, the said John
Absolon the master and Company of the SWanne with the assistance
of severall other men who they got out of another ship, did do
