was an unlawfull voyage And Nathaniell [?h]utchinson the
Masters Cheefe Mate sayd it was an unlawfull voyage and
a thing Contrary to the Grandsigniours Command that anye
Christians shipp should lade Corne at Cassandra and that they
that did lade Corne there were in danger (if discovered) to bee
made perpetuall slaves, and therefore hee would not goe that
voyage upon any termes whatsoever but would rather take
his Cloathes and leave the sayd shipp and pay for his passage
home to England, or to that effect, and the sayd Company all
but this deponent and the sayd Brookes and the Master and Purser
being unwilling to goe the sayd voyage the purser tooke a list
of the names of all the refusers and carried the same on shoare to
show to the Providore a foresayd whereupon there came a
Mandato or Warrant from the Providore to require the sayd
hutchinson to appeare before him and the same being
brought aboard in absence of this deponent (who was
then on shoare with the Master and Purser) the said shipps
Company as hee hath heard would not suffer the
sayd hutchinson to goe a shoare to the Providore, and
this deponent heard some of the Company before the sayd
mandato came, and while this deponent was on board, saye, that
they expected that a mandato would come and were resolved
when it did come the sayd hutchinson should not goe, And
hee saith that the sayd master Purser and this deponent come
aboard after the sayd Mandato had bin soe sent, forced the
gunnes traversed fore and afte, and farther hee cannot
depose saving hee saith the sayd Companyes refuseing to
goe was the cause the sayd voyage was lost./

To the 8th hee cannot depose

To the [?ixth] hee saith that hee did observe that while the
shipp the George Bonadventure laye at Zant the arlate
Christopher N[?o]ck did lye a shoare some tymes, but
how many dayes or nights hee knoweth not, and whether he
lay on shoare upon his owne pleasure or had the Masters
leave soe to doe hee knoweth not, And saith that the sayd
shipps Company or the greater part of them did at Zant
demand of the Master three moneths pay or thereabouts
at the rate of fower and sixe pence a doller and the sayd Master refused to pay them, and thereupon all
fowerteene of the sayde shipps Company (whereof Richard [XXXXX GUTTER]
one of the parties in this suite was one) did goe a shoare at Zant
and desert the sayd shipp for the space of a day each and a night
