The 20th of October 1657.

Cowse against the Golden ffortune}
and against Jones. Suckly. Smith}
Exámined upon an allegation on behalfe of
the said Cowse given in the 16th instant.

Rp. .j.

Giles Baily of the parish of Saint Mary Magdalen
Bermondsea Mariner, aged 30 yeeres or
thereabouts sworne and exámined.

To the fourth article of the said allegation hee saith and deposeth that
hee well knoweth the arlate James Reade and Morgan Jonas, and
saith the said Morgan Jone's was shipped for and went Master of the shipp
the Golden ffortune the voyage allegate, and tooke the governement of
the said shipp upon him for the said voyage, of this deponents sight and
knowledge, this deponent being second mate unto him in
the same. And saith that the said shipp the said voyage, from the time
of her issuing or going out of the Gararchicho in the Iland of Teneriff, to
the time of her comming to the an anchor in the Roade of Palma spent
eight dayes space or thereabouts, and went once about the said Iland
of Palma before shee could finde the said roade, And otherwise hee
cannot depose, saving what followeth.

To the fifth article hee saith and deposeth that after the dispatch of the said
shipp and goods aboard her from the said Iland of Palma, the said
Morgan Jonas was by order of the producents Edmund and James Cowse
or their agents (as this deponent was informed) to saile the said shipp
directly to the Iland of Barbada's, but through the unskilfulnes or carelessnes
of the said Jone's the said Iland of Barbado's was overshott by the said
shipp, soe much, that shee was nine dayes or thereabouts more then shee
needed to have bin in gaining and seaking her port in the said Iland
which hee knoweth being his second mate, and going the said voyage in the
said shipp, and as touching the unskilfulnes of the said Jonas, hee saith
hee cannot otherwise depose thereof, than that the observation made from
time to time by the said Jonas of the sun at Noone, was thirtie minutes
or halfe a degree to the Southward of the observation of this deponent and
of William Trutter the cheife mate, who often compared his observation with
this deponents and they still agreed, and found the said Master to be soe much
in an errour, and though they told him thereof, yet still hee persisted
to navigate the shipp according to his owne observation, which being
soe erroneous, this deponent conceiveth that that was the cause of
such his missing his ports and places sought for, and to be longer
(by that meanes) in finding them than otherwise hee needed.

To the 6th hee saith that there were laded aboard the said shipp in
this port before her proceeding on the said voyage, namely in or about
the moneth of January 1656 by the said producents or their order
(amongst other goods) foure bales of goods, but the contents hee
knoweth not, but they were said to be a bale of fustian and three of
Linnen, to be transported to the Canaries in the said shipp, and saith
that the said foure bales of goods were through the carelessnes or ignorance
of the said Jonas removed from the place for ward on before the maine
