Biographical synthesis

Henry Damorin (b. ca. 1620; d. ?), Ropemaker.

Resident in 1658 in the parish of Stepney in the county of Middlesex.

Evidence from High Court of Admiralty

Thirty-eight year old Henry Damorin deposed on April 27th 1658 in the High Court of Admiralty, He was examined on a libel on behalf of Edward Bartlet in the cause "Edward Bartlet against the ship called the Edward of London whereof Richard Stevens was master and against Richard Rooke and Company Interveyning for their interest".[1]

The case concerns the ship the Edward of London, of which Richard Stevens was master and commander until the time of his death. An outstanding bill for rope and cordage supplied by the ropemaker Edward Bartlet remained unpaid.

Henry Damorin worked for Edward Bartlet, saying that he was "living then (alsoe at this present) with the said Bartlett and helping to make the said cordage, and alsoe helping to put itt into a boate, to be sent aboard the said ship". The necessary cordage for the ship the Edward of London was supplied by Edward Bartlet. Damorin states that "the said cordage contained the weight, schedulate this deponent seeing and helpeing to weigh the same". Regarding one Mr Rooke, Henry Damorin states that Rooke was a part-owner (of the Edward) and "sawe the said goods weighed, before their soe sending aboard".[2]

In Damorin's estimation "by reason the said Edward Bartlett hath not received the summe of lxvj: li xiiij: s 06 being the just summe due for the sayd cordage used about the repairing of the said ship Edward, hee hath in this deponents Judgment suffered losse and dammage to the Vallue of xx: li and upwards for want of the use of the said money".[3]
