called Arent Marinis.

To the second and third hee saith that upon the said running of the said

most of his company came ashore and used every meanes and
diligence for preservation of her and her lading, and the next morning began

for the owners use, which hee knoweth being one of those that were
imployed therein by the said master, and helping to take out some

had carts and boates by the said shipps side readie to carry them away,
one called mr howe (said to be steward to the earle of Arundell)
came downe to the said place to the shipps side, and this deponent
speaking to him and saying, hee thought the best anchor and
cable were due to my lord of Arundell for groundage, to which the
said mr howe answered and said, if the best anchor and cable are
due to my lord, the whole shipp and lading are due to him, and
