shipp the Peacock, Adrian Keene Master}

Examined upon an allegation given in on
behalfe of the said claimers 11th of this

Adrian Keene of fflushing Mariner, aged [?XXXX]
yeeres or thereabouts sworne and examined.

To the first article of the said allegation hee deposeth that the shipp the
Peacock arlate was laden at Rochell in ffrance with salt amounting to
eightie lasts or a last or two under or over, and bound for Nieuport in fflanders
and this deponent her master was by speciall contract and agreement to
have for the transportation of the said salt from Rochell to Nieuport [?XXXX]
gilders per last, which was and is the usuall freight and allowance for
the like transportation, and soe much this deponent well deserved to have
Besides hee saith that hee this examinate was to have for a [?XXXX]
for himselfe thirtie gilders, and to have two third parts of all the port
charges allowed, which charges amounteth to sixtie gilders as hee
saith. And further that a gilder is commonly reckoned to be and to
make and amount to two shillings sterling, and soe a hundred gilders to
tenn pounds sterling, and proportionably a greater or lesser summe of gilders
And otherwise hee cannot depose.

To the Interrogatories. [CENTRE HEADING]

To the first hee answereth that hee hath a 16th part in the said
shipp the Peacock, and is to have his proportionable share of the
freight after payment of wages and charges.

To the second hee saith hee kept and tooke account of the salt
which was put aboard the shipp at Rochell, and saith the quantitie
seaven french hundreds of salt lacking a moy and halfe, all amounting
to eightie lasts (Zealand lastes) or thereabouts and otherwise negatively

To the 16 third hee saith hee made the accord the for 16 gilders
per last freight, which was to be received at Nieuport, if hee
come thither, and if not, then upon comming to Middleborowe
was to recieve 15 gilders only per last; and saith 16 gilders for
Nieuport is very meane and ordinary freight.

To the 4th hee saith that Nieuport is somewhat a shorter passage
from Rochell then Middleborowe, but Nieuport being a dangerous [?harbour]
by reason of sands, the freight is more thither then to Middleborowe
and that dover is shorter passage then either of them, and saith
hee would have had as much freight to dover as to Middleborowe
the mens wages and charges being considered.

To the last hee saith hee conceiveth it is even alike proposition
to receive 100 li sterling in England (which should have bin received at
Nieuport) as to receive it at Nieuport, and saith hee referreth
himselfe to the course of Merchants in the matter interrogate
and otherwise cannot answer./
