Resident in 1653 in Shadwell.

Evidence from High Court of Admiralty

Thirty-two year old George Moulin deposed on October 13th 1653 in the High Court of Admiralty.[1] He was examined on an allegation in the case of "The Keepers of the Liberty on the one part against the Golden Starr or Morning Starr.[2]

George Moulin gave an account of a naval battle. He stated that "upon the Munday next after the Portland fight this last winter the tyme otherwise he remembreth not, the arlate shipps the Advantage and the Waterhound tooke the arlate shipp the Golden Starr or Morning Starr in fight off of Beachy about 4 leagues from the English shoare."[3]

Rather graphically, Moulin states that "Captaine of the Advantage did not onely wave his cuttlace over his head bidding the Advantage come under his lee, but after one gunn with shott had bene made by the Advantage to bring her foresayle to the mast, in a most insolent and base unseemly manner and by way of defiance of this Commonwealths frigott turned downe his breeches and held upp his naked bumme or breech at Captaine Mill commander of the sayd Advantage frigot all which this deponent saw and observed."[4]
