Biographical synthesis

Stephen Frigg (; d.?). Waterman. Describes himself also as a "lighter man".

Regularly employed by William Crosse, a Southwark brewer, to transport beer from his Southwark brewery to ships anchored in the Thames.

Evidence from High Court of Admiralty

Fifty year old Stephen Frigg deposed on March 14th 1656 in the High Court of Admiralty. He was examined on an allegation on behalf of William Crosse in the case of "Crosse against the Chase whereof Benjamin Gunson was Commander".[1]

Stephen Frigg stated that he was a "lighter man" and "usually imployed by Mr Crosse to carry beere aboard shipps". He knew both William Cross, who was a brewer, and Benjamin Gunson, who was commander of the ship the Chase. He recalled that in June 1652 he carried five tonnes of beer in casks aboard the Chase and a further twenty-five and fourteen tonnes in November of the same year "for the use of her company". He, Stephen Frigg, was paid 12 d per tonne for the carriage of the beer. The beer was supplied by "Mr Crosses Beerhouse in Maudlins Lane in Southwark."[2]
