Evidence from High Court of Admiralty
Henry Marsh appeared in the High Court of Admiralty on August 2nd 1667. In the legal preamble he is described as "Henricus Marsh" in the parish of Saint Olave Hart Street, "wine cooper", and his age is given as forty-five. He signs his name "Hen: Marsh".
Marsh was examined on a libel and stated that he and a fellow wine cooper named John Willis had viewed and apprised a "parcel of wynes and vinigar laying in a cellar belonging to the Artillery Hoyse upon Horsey-down". There he found 73 tuns of french wine and three tuns, one and a half hogsheads of vinegar. Both the wine and the vinger were "much decayed and damnified". He duely valued the goods.
The London merchant Isaack Stockman added that the wine and vinegar "were carryed on shore by this deponent and stored by his order and stowed in a cellar hyred for that purpose under the Artillery house upon Horsey-downe, and were there viewed and appreized by his contests John Willis and Mr Marsh wynecowpers". Earlier, Stockman refers to John Willis and Henry Marsh as "two substantiall wyne cowpers".
