shipp departed from Cyprus with all her sayd homewards ladeing on
board her and full sayle thense towards Legorno but in her course thitherwards
mett with very fowle and tempestious weather by meanes whereof the hinges and
Irons of her Rudder were broken and the Rudder washed off into the sea, (but rec[?overed GUTTER]
againe and gotten aboard the sayd shipp) and the sayd shipp sprang a leake or two by)
violence of the sayd storme whereat shee receaved much water soe that the sayd
shipp by reason of the sayd leakes and alsoe for want of her rudder to guide and
steere her by, was forced to returne back to Cyprus it being her neerest port
and there un lade the greatest part of her ladeing thereby to new hange her Rudder
and stopp her leakes which were deepe under water And hee saith her Rudder
being hunge and her leakes stopped and repayred the Interrogate John
Harris the Master of her and Company fell to reladeing the goods by them soe
there unladen, but were (after they had reladen some of them) hindered from
reladeing the rest by some officers of the Grand signior who pretended that
the goodes being there unladen new customes was due to the Grand signiour for
them before they might bee reladen, and the sayd Master being a stranger and
not knowing what was to be done in such case did apply him selfe to the Interrogate
Roger ffooke who was and is reputed the English Consull at Cyprus
and the sayd ffowke having had conference with the sayd Officers of the Grand signiour
soe pacified them either with rewards or other perswasions that they did
permitt the sayd Master and Company to relade the rest of the sayd goods on
board the sayd shipp, but saith the same being laden, the sayd ffowke did
in presence of this deponent and his Contests Robert Pembridge and Symon
Roe and others of the sayd shipps company demand of the sayd Harris the Master
as due to him the sayd Consull for Consullage and other moneys paid for
cleereing the sayd goods there eighteene hundred peeces of eight, and the sayd Master
answered and told the sayd ffooke that hee had noe money and was a stranger
there or to that effort, whereupon the sayd ffowke imprisoned the sayd Master
for not paying the same, and kept him in his his the sayd ffowkes house
under custody of Janizaries, and the sayd Roe, Pembridge and one Turner being of
the sayd shipps company and coming on shoare to the Master hee seized upon
them alsoe, and kept them under like restraint, and afterwardes sent sent or pe[?rmitted GUTTER]
some officers of the sayd Grand signiour to be sent aboard the sayd shipp
and released the sayd Roe Pembridge and Turner who came aboard the sayd shipp
And the sayd officers being come aboard did cause the hatches to bee opened
and tooke there out three bayles of silke part of the sayd shipps ladeing and
carried the same a shoare, and disposed thereof at their will and pleasure for non
payment of the sayd eighteene hundred dollers, which done, the sayd
ffooke then released the sayd Master the
premisses hee deposeth of his knowledge being an eye and eare wittnes of
them and saith the sayd bayles were taken from on shipp board in presence of
this deponent and the sayd Roe Pembridge and Turner and the rest of the sayd shipps
Company who were all then on boarde, And hee saith hee verily beleaveth and
is perswaded in his conscience that unlesse the sayd 18 hundred dollers h[?ad GUTTER]
bin paid or other satisfaction made for them neither the sayd Master nor any of
the rest of the sayd shipps ladeing could or would have bin discharged [?soe GUTTER]
that the sayd three bayles were taken away meerely meerely for preservation
of the rest of the sayd shipps ladeing And further to these Interrogatories hee
cannot depose/
