Super allone prodict Examinat


Benjamin Bennett de Kingston supra Thamesm in Com Surria ?Gen
annos agens 32 aut de ricter testis productus et Juratus dicit
et deponit prout sequitur (videlicet)

Ad primum et 2 arles deponit that hee this depot was steward of the vessell
or man of warr called the Royall [?Herroneo] Bourne Captaine
at the seizure of the shipp God liffe Michael Sansiers Master And saith that
upon his the said Sansiers first coming on board the Royall hee the said
Sansier stamping and fretting severe and passionately said that had hee
knowne that the Royall had had soe few men on board he would not have
bin taken he would have runne her over first, Which words of
the like in effect hee soe spake in the Cabbin in the presence of this deponent
and his precontest John Blackwall and the Captaine of the man of warr
And shortly after namely within two days or thereabouts
after the said seizure he the said Sansiers declared and acknowledged
that his shipp and lading were good prize and that hee was bound
for Amsterdam And saith the said Captaine Sansier did declare to him
this deponent walking upon the said Royalls deck, that hee had bine
Captaine of a Dutch private mann of warr under or by a Dutch Commission
and had taken severall English merchant men, And that if hee lost
his Shipp and goods (speaking of and meaning the Shipp and goods in question)
he cared not for it (knowing that they were prize) hee had another
Shipp provided for him in his Country a better vessell than this was, hee
would therewith take English merchant men enough to make him
selfe whole againe or words to that effect. And saith that about
Seaven dayes after seizure hee the said Sansier in the evening of a day
proffered this deponent tenn pounds if soe bee
he would but suffer him to leap over board and swim to shore that
hee might get to London and procure a passage to his owne country
Saying that his Shipp and lading were prize but notwithstanding
that hee cared not for it hee should quickly bee revenged upon
the English merchants and make himselfe better than hee was before
could hee but got into his Country, Saying that hee knoweth here to
find and meete with the English merchants everey day, or in words
to that effect, And such was his discourse as well in publique as
in private and as well onshore as on board the ffriott and a
Common discourse in Company upon any occasion, Et alr nescit saving
this deponent telling the said Sansier that if hee lept over board hee would
bee drowned hee told this deponent. that he feard it not ffor he could swim
well enough. Whereupon this deponent was forced to put him in the hold and was
forced to lye upon the hatch wrapped up in a saile least hee should have made an
escape in the night. Et alr nescit ./.

Ad 3 arlum deponit that hee hath heard by the Captaine [?XXXX] to the [?effect]
arlate. Et alr nescit.
