Forty-two year old Jeremy Blackman deposed on April 6th 1650 in the High Court of Admiralty. He was examined on an allegation on behalf of Whitter in the case of "Ex parte Capitanes Whittey con Hucket et al."
A set of accounts exist in High Court of Admiralty records providing "An Account of the losses sustayned by Captaine William Rider Captaine Jeremie Blackman Lucas Lucie John Robinson John Harris William and George Branton and others, which were Owners and freighters of the shipp called the Roe Buck of London, being taken and surprised by Prince Rupert neere the Porte of Lisobone in Portugall the 18th of November 1649."
