Evidence from High Court of Admiralty

Twenty-two year old Lovewell Luckett deposed on February 3rd 1657.[2] He deposed on an allegation on behalf of Gosling in the case of "Batson against Gosling".

The case concerned a commercially unsuccessful whaling voyage to Spitzbergen, which had been financed by Richard Batson and others. Edward Gosling was one of the master's mates of the ship the Owners Adventure.

Luckett stated that he was one of the company of the Owners Adventure and had "the halfe stereage of a harponeeres shallop belonging to the sayd shipp committed to his care by the order and appointment of the sayd Damerell" (the master of the Owners Adventure).[3]
