Evidence from High Court of Admiralty
Forty-eight year old John Joal deposed on September 4th 1654 in the High Court of Admiralty. He was exa,ined in the case of "Hearne against Waterman".
John Joal stated that he knew Jenry Hearne, late gunner of the ship the Merchant Adventure of London (Commander: Edward Waterman). Joal was in Venice in February 1653, and was present in company with Henry Hearne and Captain Waterman and "heard them reckon together for the wages of the said Hearne who departed the said shipp and refused to serve any longer in her"..
Instead Hearne shipped himself on a ship named the Anne Bonadventure (Master: Christopher Page), which was to go into the service of the Duke of Venice. John Joal and his fellow mate went aboard the Anne Bonadventure to attempt to persuade Henry Hearne to return to their ship, for they were short of men. They told him that she had been taken into the service of the English Commonwealth. They told him he would have good wages and that the voyage would be safe. Allegedly Hearne "utterly refused to retourne aboard the Merchant Adventurer, and said, and swore, Bb God, hee would not goe home to serve the Parliament".
