knowne in Cadiz and other parts of Spayne and in fflanders and other
parte beyond the seas, and to the Master and Company of the Golden Starr
And otherwise cannot depose saving that there still is warr betweene
England and Holland and that he knoweth the premisses bring one of the
Company of the Advantage and present att the seizure of the sayd shipp the
Golden Starr.

To the fifth sixth seventh and eighth articles of the sayd allegation this deponent
saith and deposeth that the shipp the Advantage being in her course sailing
from Dover Road to Porthmouth espyed a shipp making her course to the
Eastward or East and by South being the course for Holland, which shipp
afterwards proved to be the Golden Starr arlate, which having this
Weather gage of the Advantage Captaine Mills caused his Holland
[Ancyent] to be putt out upon the Advantage thereby to cause the Golden
Starr to beare upp to him and withall shott off a gunn, and the sayd
shipp Golden Starr immediately did beare upp to the Advantage according
to expectation, And further saith that the sayd Captaine Mills after his shipp
was some within shott videlicet about a quarter of a mile from the
Golden Starr tooke downe his Holland [Ancyent] and putt out the
English Colours and Parliament Jack and made a shott att the Golden
Starr to make her strike, which she did not but putt out a Red flagg
with the picture of an hand and sword therein and stood off from the Advantage
and shaped her former Course, whereupon the Advantage followed
after and being some upp with her haled her and bade her strike in
the name of the Parliament of England and hoyst out their boat that
she might be visited, but the master and Company of the Golden Starr did not onely refuse
so to doe by saying they had noe boat whereas it afterwards appeared
they had a good one aboard but allso demeanded themselves very
insolently against the Parliament and their frigot upon the English coast; the Master of the Golden Starr
clapping his hand upon his breech, and waving his Cutlace over
his head, and upon Captaine Mills firing att him agayne to make
him submitt to be visited according to reason and custome, firing upon
the sayd shipp the Advantage then wearing the Parliaments Colours and
fought with her for the space of three of four howres and killed
some of her Company, and the sayd Master and Company did their
utmost endeavour with their shipp Golden Starr to sink and destroy
the foresayd shipp the Advantage, and the English aboard her All
which this deponent knoweth being present in the sayd fight and seeing and
well observing the premisses. And otherwise he cannot depose.

To the 9 and 10th articles of the sayd allegation this deponent saith that during
the sayd fight the arlate shipp the Waterhound and another shipp in the service
of this Commonwealth both wearing the Colours of this Commonwealth came upp
to the Assistance of the Advantage, and the sayd shipp Waterhound fell in with
the Golden Starr and fought with her, and the Golden Starr made severall
shotts att the Waterhound and fought with her, till she was boarded [?suddenly]
and taken by the sayd Waterhound, And saith that the foresayd red flag



Captaine Mills, of the Advantage
