Evidence from High Court of Admiralty

Forty-eight year old Robert Tindall deposed on June 11th 1656 in the High Court of Admiralty. He was examined on interrogatories "On the behalfe of Alderman Andrew Riccard and others touching the shipp the Love whereof Robert Tindall is commander".[1] Tindall stated that he had been the commander of the ship the Love on her homeward voyage from the South Seas. On her return she had carried a lading of pepper, which she had taken on at "Andropare in the island of Summatra was to have bin carried to Ligorne and there to have bin delivered". On her outward voyage the crew consisted of 95 mariners (men and boys), of whom 33 died on the voyage and "many of the rest were much affected with sicknesse". The commander of the ship, Captaine Jourdain, was one of the men who died, just two days after departing Sumatra.[2] Tindall stated that by the time the ship reached the Straights Mouth, the crew was so much reduced by death and sickness, it was not possible to sail to Ligorne.[3]
