perpetuall memorie of the matter on the behalfe of}
Edward Wood and Companie ffreighter of the shipp}
the Morning Starr of which Thomas Bennett was}
Master. Suckley.}

Examined upon Interrogatories on the behalfe
of the said Edward Wood and Companye

Rp. 1.us/

Edward Crannidge of Limehouse in the parish
of Stepney and County of Middlesex Marriner, aged
22 yeares or therabouts sworne and examined saith and
deposeth as followeth Videlicet:-

To the first of the said Interrogatories hee saith and deposeth, That hee this deponent
well knew the shipp the Morning starr interrate whereof the interrate
Thomas Bennet was Master in her Late voyage interrate from the Barabadoes
being consigned for London, but put into Kingsale in or about the moneth of
November and December 1655. Last past, And saith That in such the said
shipps voyage from the Barbadoes aforesaid, the said shipp received much
water into her hould, shee then being to this deponents best judgement and
remembrance in the lattitude of about fiftie degrees, and saith the water shee
then received in was about five foot, the wynd then being, as this deponent now
remembereth, southerly, The Premisses hee saith hee knoweth, for that hee
this deponent was passenger in and aboard the said shipp the voyage aforesaid. And
further cannot depose./

To the second Interrogatorie hee saith That the said waters comeing into the said shipp
was not originally occasioned by any storme or stresse of weather, nor by any
negligence or default of the said Master and Companie soe farr as this deponent
saw or observed, but saith hee observed some defect in the said shipp, videlicet That
the hoodings ends of the said shipp, wrought from the stemm by which
meanes the water entred in, And saith that the pumpe was diligently plyed
soe farr as this deponent observed, but what or how long the intermissions were
this deponent cannot now remember, and saith before the pumpe [?sucked], they pumped
five or sixe howers continually before the said shipp was freed of the said five
foot water or therabouts, and that shee had a maine saile and a foresaile out at
such time as shee received the said water, And saith, the reasons that the water
did not come to the Chaine pumpe as is interrate were for that the said shipp
was stoaked, and the boards of the well being nailed very cloase and swelling
hindred the passage of the water, soe that it could not come [XXXX] or otherwise
than it was drained through the ballast then aboard the said shipp. The
Premisses hee deposeth upon the grounds of knowledge eyesight and observation
as aforesaid. And further cannot depose:./

To the third Interrogatorie hee saith, That hee this deponent did not at the Barbadoes
interrate see or observe the voyage interrate any insufficiency in the said
shipp, saveing, that if hee had observed any such insufficiency hee had not
imbarqued himselfe in or aboard the same, and saith the goods interrate
were much damnified by the water that came in as aforesaid, not knowing
whether the same happened by the said shipps insufficiency, And saith the said
shipp putt into Kingsale in Ireland, being thereunto necessitated by the causalty
aforesaid for the preservation of shipp and goods and men aboard her, not
knowing that any of the said shipps then lading was unladen in Ireland, nor
whether any of the same were there imbeazeled. neither hath this deponent
heard anything thereof. And further cannot depose
