'''Thomas Sinnet''' of the parish of Saint Buttolphs<br /> Algate Mariner, aged 40 yeares or thereabouts<br /> sworne and exámined. To the first hee saith hee well knoweth the shipp the ''White lilly''<br /> arlate and alsoe the producents Patrick Betts and Anthony ffernandez<br /> who (with their company) were the time arlate and commonly accounted the<br /> owners and proprietors of the said shipp, tackle and furniture, whereof<br /> the said Betts was the said time master and commander of this deponents<br /> knowledge who was then one of her company. To the second, third and fourth and 5th articles hee saith that the said shipp that<br /> ''White lilly'' was in the said time namely in Aprill now last past well<br /> and sufficiently moored in a safe and convenient place neare horsey downe<br /> where shipps doe usually and ordinarily ride, and then lay and remained<br /> moored two dayes space or thereabouts before the shipp the ''Prince'' arlate<br /> came and arived there, in all which time the shipp ''white lilly'' had<br /> neither donne or received hurt or dammage for or from any other shipp<br /> or vessell; but after shee had soe ridd and bin moored for the said<br /> space the said shipp the ''Prince'' came and was by her master and company<br /> brought to an anchor very neere and fowle of the ''White lillies''<br /> moorings, and soe that shee grounded upon the ''White lillies'' cable<br /> and upon the tide of flood drove aboard her, and put her from her<br /> moorings and drove her athwart the chaine, and thereby<br /> necessitated the master and company of the ''White lilly'' to cut their<br /> cable, to get her cleare of the Anchor of the ''Prince''.
