Company on shore on his said Boate, and came to an Anchor
soe soone as ever the Company of the said Spanish Vessell
perceived they altered their Course, and came directly before the
winde, as if they would have surprized the Lixon ffrigot, which
was generally beleeved amongst all the said ships Company
that they would have done, when her boate, and some of her
Company. were gone from her to the shore, and further
hee cannot depose:

To the 13th and 14th hee saith that soe soone as the said ketcher and
his Company perceived that the three Spanish vessells made
towards them as aforesaid the said Ketcher caused his Anchor to be
weighed. and put his ship under saile, which being perceived by
the said Spanish vessells they immediately altered their course againe
and made from the Lisbone ffrigot, seeing that her Company
and men were not gone ashore in their boate, And saith that
hee verily beleeveth that if the said Ketcher, and four or five of his men had gone ashore, at such time as the said
Spanish vessells were saileing as aforesaid the said Spanish
vessell might and would have taken and Surprized the
said ship Lixon ffrigot for want of men And further hee
cannot depose./

To the 15th hee saith that at such time as the said last Spanish Boate
was and remained in or neere the Lixon ffrigott, some of the
said men therein told some of the Company of the Lixon ffrigott
that Captaine Neale of Dover was with his said ship trading
in GaXXchico Road (which is about five Leagues from Oratava Road)
and the said Ketcher thinking it might be true, and iff it were soe
they might trade securer together. did cause his ship to be caried
thither, but upon his arrivall there found not the said Neale
but two or three other ships, which this deponent
beleeveth were Spanish ships, neither hadthis Neale bin there in
many monethes before, And thereupon both the said Tye, and
the said Ketcher, and all the said ships Company did absolutely
Conclude and agree that what the said Spaniards in both the said boates said or
did was used mearely as a meanes and devise to ?betray both
ship and goods. and therefore none of the said ships Company
would or did goe on shore, afterwards: and further hee
cannot depose./.

To the 16th hee saith the said Ketcher did whilest the said ship
lay in the said Road of Oratava often sollicite, and desire the said
Carlo Tye to goe on shore to the effect aforesaid and did never offer to hinder him
by word or Action; and the said Carolo was twice ashore as
aforesaid without effecting any thing in getting prattick for the
sayd ship, And further cannot depose./.
