Evidence from High Court of Admiralty
Twenty-four year old William Glanvill deposed on January 19th 1656 in the High Court of Admiralty.
He was examined on an allegation on the behalf of Winchurst in the case of "Winchurst and Yong against Andrewes".
William Glanvill described the freighting and departure of the ship the Edward from London to ffyall, arriving there on October 23rd 1654. The ship stayed thirty-five days at ffyall taking in the goods and merchandizes of Samuell Andrewes until November 24th 1654.
At ffyall 125 tons of wine were laden for Samuel Andrewes, reckoning two ffiall casks to a ton. Glanvill claimed the ship could have taken on more wines if the factors had provided them. He claimed the master of the Edward "moved the said factors to lade more wines, and tould them that hee could and would take into his said shipp twenty six tonnes and a halfe more of wine over and above the five tonnes arlate (allowed to the master) and her tackle furniture and apparell".
From ffiall the ship sailed to Boston in New England, where the wines were delivered. Following the orders of Andrewes' New England factors the ship then sailed for Virginia, arriving on April 7th 1655, where she remained until June 12th 1655 taking in goods for Andrewes' account. Finally the ship set sail from Virginia for her return voyage to London, and the ship was discharged in London on August 23rd 1655.
Glanvill gave detailed calculations of the ship's capacity and actual lading, stating that "the burthen of 156 tonnes and a halfe, according to the measure taken of her, and could have carried 151 tonnes and a halfe of wine from ffiall to New England the said voyage (over and besides her tackle, furniture apparrell and provisions and five tonnes for the said master) in case the said Andrewes his factors would have laden the same, and that shee went dead freighted at least 26 tonnes and a halfe of the said Andrewes his tonnage from ffiall to New England". The primage due and to be paid by Andrewes came to £8-14-00.
