and as to the valew thereof, this examinate being by the said seizors
deprived of all his shipps papers Invoyces and accompts cannot at present
give any exact or particular accompt thereof, but saith, That to the best of
this deponents judgment and as hee is in Conscience fully convinced the
lading of the said shipp before mentioned and particularized was at the
time of the said seizure of the reall and true value of six hundred
pounds sterling at the Least, and that the said shipp tackle and
furniture were of the reall value of three hundred pounds sterling
or thereabouts, as this deponent doeth also in Conscience and to the best
of his Judgement verily believe, as knowing that the said shipp was on
the behalfe of the said John Shorter at Berghen aforesaid bought and
provided for the summe of seaven hundred and fifty rixdalers, besides
the fitting and furniture bestowed upon the same both at Berghen aforesaid
and also at this Port of London, upon her last intended Voiage
Moreto this Interrogatorie hee saith not/:-

To the second Interrogatorie hee saith, That hee knoweth not what is
become of the said shipp or of her tackle apparrell furniture
or lading since the time that this deponent was by the said seizors soe

during the time of his restraint by the said seizors on board the said

pistolls and cutlases to kill [OR, bill] him or to cutt his throat, calling him

shipp and goods did belong to the Lord Protector (meaning as this

Protector on board the said shipp in the place of him this deponent they
would use or entreat him in such evell and barbarous manner
as this examinate conceiveth unfitting to be further in this his deposition
expressed. further this deponent saith, That during such his said restraint
hee was in a continuall feare and apprehension to habe beene killed
or throwne over board, as the said Captaine and Companie continually
menaced him, and was finally sett on shoare at Cromer aforesaid,
the said Captaine showing this deponent his long boate on the one side
of his shipp and the sea on the other, and telling him that hee
must passe one of those waies, and being sett on shoare, the doctor
or Chirurgion of the said private man of warr tooke away eight
pounds sterling or thereabouts from this deponent and
afterwards this deponent coming from thence towards London was
malitiously pursued and detained by the said seizors or upon their
suggestion that hee this deponent was a Lord, and was, as they
pretended, come out of fflanders from the enemies of this Common
