To the first article of the sayd allegation he deposeth and
saith that the arlate shipp the Gilbert was bound in the
last voyage (which is the voyage arlate) from this port of
London unto the Barbadoes, and thense to London again,
And that the same was very well knowne unto the
Plaintiffs in this cause for that they were hyred for
That and noe other voyage, namely to discharge their
her inward bound lading her (sic) at London and he saith
that all the bills of the sayd shipps homeward bound lading were signed
for London and noe other place, And further he
cannot depose.

To the second article of the sayd allegation he deposeth that
in the arlate shipp hee cometh for this post of London from
the Barbadoes she came to an anchor of Aberdaugh
in Wales on or about the eighteenth day of January 1656
and that the wind was then Easterly, and that when the
sayd shipp came soe to an anchor the weather was thick
and foggy, and that about fower or five hours after
the weather clearing up and the wind continueing easterly he this deponent called unto the

that they showld sayle for Milford, he this deponent

to have sayled for London, which would have bin but a

that notwithstanding his sayd order or command the maior
part of the Mariners of the sayd shipp told him this
deponent and swore that they would not touch a rope except

(notwithstanding all the perswasions and reasons that he this
deponent used) in their mutiny and tumult, he this deponent
was forced to sayle for Bristoll, otherwise shipp and
goods might have perished, for that the place she rode in
nigh Aberdaugh would have bin a dangerous place if it
had blowne, and soe have endangered all, And he saith that
the principall of the said shipps Company, who would not oney
this deponents comand were the arlate Cobb, Tanner, Gillett, [AXX GUTTER]
