7. q. relliquas in B.1.

Oliva de Michel borne in Venice
late Carpenter of the said Shipp the Angelo
Custada aged 22 yeares or thereabouts
sworne, examined and interpreted as
aforesaid, saith and deposeth by vertue of
his oath.

That the said shipp the Angelo Custoda (Stephen [?Romanello] commander)
came from Venise in the moneth of Aprill last past laden with Annise seeds,
Rice, Almonds, brimstone and currance, and bound for hambourgh the
port of her intended dischardge, and that the said goods were laden at
Venise by Marchants of Venise, and that shee was in the said voyage
foure monethes space and upwards in comming from Venise to the downes, occasioned
by calmes and contrarywindes; And saith their provisions of victualls
and drinke being quite spent in that space, the said Captaine [?Romanello]
and company were constrained to put with the said vessell into the downes
there to get supplies, to the end they might prosecute their intended voyage
for hamborough, And saith that after their necessarie stay there for
making provisions, they were preparing to depart, and being readie
to set saile, there arose a greate storme on the eighteenth day of
August last old stile (foure dayes after their comming in thither) by
the fury and violence whereof there came two fflemish [XXockes] that
night one after the other fowle of the Angelo Custada and brake her
head, bolt spritt, tore her sailes and forced her from her
anchors, and when her company had let fall another anchor, they
found that shee had received in soe much sea water that shee was

warr a greate vessell having by the violence of the same storme
broke from her anchors came alsoe fowle of the Angelo Custada
and broke downe her sides, and put her in such danger of
sinking that the said Captaine Romanello and companie were forced
(to save them) to cutt their cable and endeavour to run the shipp
ashore, and as they were running ashore at dover, and fearing to
miscarry, they shott two peeces of ordnance to the end to [?invite] some
succour to come out unto them, and accordingly there came out
a boate with a cable, which was fastened to the shapp at one end
and to a capsten upon the shore with the other end, and soe [?the]
said shipp was by degrees haled into the peir, but the [?waves]
going high (the storme still continueing) shee strucke severall
times upon the peir head as shee was heaving in, and was
soe shattered and made leakie by the said striking and by the
[?force] before received, that shee had betweene foure and five
foote water in hold notwithstanding that her companie used
all diligence in plying the pump, and when with
much adoe shee was brought into the Peir, her company [?were]
about to [?search] her condition and to repaire her the [XXXXX]
