Edmund Leman (b. ?; d. ?). Water surveyor to the Commissioners for Prize Goods.
No age recorded by the Court notary public.
Resident in 1655 in Horsey down in the county of Surrey.
Evidence from High Court of Admiralty
Edmund Leman stated that he went to Lee road (by the town of Lee on the north shore of the Thames estuary) on July 10th 1655. He went as surveyor for the Office for Prize Goods, together with waiters and seamen, to take possession of a number of ships, including the ship the Rossell. This ship had been taken by the Advantage frigot. "Comming aboard her hee sawe and found severall baggs of wooll betwixt her decks, and sawe corne and alsoe sawe that her hold was full of corne, and soe full that there was not roome therein for the corne that was lying betwixt her decks, much lesse as hee conceived for any one of the said baggs of wooll that were alsoe lying as aforesaid betwixt decks."
