Biographical synthesis

Thomas Spratling (b. ca. 1585; d. ?). Mariner.

Cook of the coal ship the Dove (Master: Walter Cable) in 1654.

Resident in 1655 in Shadwell in the county of Middlesex.

Evidence from High Court of Admiralty

Seventy year old Thomas Spratling deposed on January 3rd 1655 in the High Court of Admiralty.[1] He was examined on an allegation on behalf of Walter Cable in the case "De haze, Stock and others against Cable".[2]

Thomas Spratling was cook on the last voyage of the ship the Dove from London to Newcastle in August 1654.[3] There were twelve men and a boy in the Dove's company. It had been alleged that his ship collided with the ship the Successe, but Spratling denied this. He reported that damage to the bow of the Dove, which was repaired in Newcastle, had been identified before she left the port of London.[4]
