Edward Ryder was called as a witness in a dispute over the extraction of gravel from the bed of the River Thames near Mr Ewen's ballastwharf in Greenwich.The source of his knowledge is that "those fower yeares last past, hee this deponent (having often occasion to passe over the same by water to Gravesend and Greenwich and other places which lye belowe the same) thereby knoweth that during that tyme there hath bin and is a shelve or banke of Gravell in the River of Thames opposite to the wharfe of the arlate Mrs Ewen the complainant in this suite, where on, hee hath as hee passed to and froe, observed an seene that lightermen have used to worke and take up ballast."
