agens 32 aut do [?circiter] testis productus et
Juratus deponit dicit prout Seg[XX]./

Ad ju nescit deponere

Ad 2.u et 3.u arlos dicit that a little before his Majesties happy arrivall in this
Nation the time otherwise hee cannnot call to minde the ship
the Swanne John A[?bsolon] Master weighed Anchor to come downe the River of Newcastle with
her Lading of Coales, and a ship said to be [?from] Brighthampson
and called the Prosperous, did at or about the same time also
weigh Anchor to [XXXX] thence, and shee came next
after the said Ship Swanne, and as the said Ship Swan
was turning about the bill point shee being becalmed,
some of her Company called out earnestly
to the Master and Company of the said ship called the Prosperous shee being then very neere the Swanne to lower their sailes,
saying that if they did not they would be aboard them or to that effect.
which words hee saith they heard, but notwithstanding they did
not lower their sailes but presently after runne their boultsprit
betweene the Swannes mizen mast and [?some] part of her
Rigging and forced the Swanns Anchor [XXXXX] soe that it could not bring the Swanne [?up] and by that meanes put her ashore and then the Prosperous went
into the middle of the River, or thereabouts where shee staid till the next tyde, but none of her Company somuch
as came to helpe to get the Swanne off. And shee being
soe onshore John fforwood Master of the John and Mary pinke of
Sandwitch sent all his Company whereof this deponent was one (saving a boy) to helpe the saud
Absolon and Company to get the said ship Swanne off, and they
used their utmost endeavour soe to doe, and carried her
best bower Anchor and a small Anchor ashore, and there made them
fast, and lashed Cable and hawser to the mainemast
but notwithstanding such their endeavours the tyde of Ebb
coming and the ground being shelving shee was bilged on
a Rock which lay under her and there sunke with her Lading of Coales which hee saith came and happened
through the carelesseness (as hee verily beleeveth) of the Master and
Company of the said Ship called the Prosperous for had they
lowered their Sailes as they were desired to doe or lett goe any Anchor [?the] same would
not have happened in all probability, And the
master and Company of the said ship called the Prosperous might have gone
with their ship on either side of the Swanne with safety The Premisses hee deposeth
being one of the Company of the said Sandwitch Pinke, (which came
next after the said ship called the Prosperous) and an Eye and Eare
witnes of the Premisses:/

Ad 6.us et .7. dicit that the next tide this deponent came away in the said Pinke
leaving the Swanne suncke as aforesaid, but hee hath heard that shee
was afterwards weighed, but howe shee was disposed of hee knoweth not
but saith that imediately before the said disaster the said
ship was worth about 200. li and her Coales which shee had the said time
in her were worth about Eighty pounds as hee beleeveth./.
