sylver of the 9th marke and number, and one bagg of the tenth marke
containing one thousand peeces of eight Peru money, all to be transported in the
said shipp to Ostend in fflanders and there to be delivered to the ffactors Agents
and Correspondents of the said producent for his proper accompt use and benefitt
The premisses hee deposeth upon the reasons ensueing, that is to say, for that
hee this deponent having for severall yeares last past held Correspondencie with, and
well knowne the trade and negotiation of Edward Peters, was in the
yeare 1652 predeposed at Antwerp, where this deponents settled residence is, and where
the said producent before the tyme that the said shipps were taken showed unto
this deponent letters of advise and bills of lading which hee had receved from his
said ffactors over land, intimating and importing, that they had laden, all the greatest
part of the sylver bullion and moneys aboard the said shipp[?s] by the order and
for and upon the proper accompt and adventure of the said producent in returne
of such his goods as hee had formerly sent unto them, And for that the said
producent upon the receiving of the said letters of advise and bills of lading, told this
deponent that hee intended to write to one Mr Rishoult (sic) then a Merchant in London
to give intimation to this Court that such silver and moneyes were laden aboard the
said shipps for the said accompt, as this deponent then also writt concerning his owne
interest in the said shipps. And otherwise saving his precedent and subsequent
depositions hee saith hee cannot depose./

To the 4. article of the said Allegation and schedules or bills of lading thereunto
annexed now showne unto and exactly perused by this examinate hee saith and
Deposth, That the said ffactors agents and Correspondents of the said Edward
Peters shortly after the lading of the severall parcells of monies plate and silver as is
predeposed, sent unto him letters of advise with bils of lading for the same which this
deponent as aforesaid then perused in Mr. Peters his howse at Antwerp and which
have since the seizure of the said shipps been sent here into England expressely
for the Clayming of the said sylver for the said accompt, and forasmuch as this
Deponent is by manie yeares experience well acquainted with the severall handwriting
wherewith the bills of lading now showne unto him are filled up and firmed, as
hee in Conscience stedfastly beleeveth, and for that hee findeth the nyne bills of
lading now perused by him punctually to agree with other nyne of the same respective
tenors seized in the said shipps, and now remaining in the Registrie of this
Court where this deponent hath often seene and perused them, hee is fully and
absolutely confirmed and assured, that the said bills of lading were and are
true and reall, and so had and done as therein is contained. And further
cannot depose:/

To the 5. and 6th. hee saith an deposeth, That the said Edward Peters
the producent in this Cause hath formerly lived at Dover in England, from
which place hee traded into Spaine for sylver, and caused severall great quantities
of sylver and bullion to be imported into this Nation this deponent then holding
Correspondency with him. And that for about 6. or 7. yeares last past the
said producent hath lived at Antwerp where hee now liveth, and is there
Burgher and a Subject of the King of Spaine, and for such was and is well knowne
