Biographical synthesis

Henry Russell (alt. Henricus Russell) (b. ca. 1641; d. ?). Cheesemonger,

Resident in Limehouse in 1660.

Evidence from High Court of Admiralty

Henry Russell was examined on a libel in the case of Thompson et cetera against Lucy and company concerning the Loyalty.

The case concerned the delivery of supplies to the Loyalty, which was under the comand of Henry Collins. Henry Russell stated that he was a near neighbour of Collins and knew him well. Russell identified himself as the servant of Nicholas Pierce, who presumably, like Russell, was a cheesemonger. Pierce and Russell had delivered a schedule of goods and provisions at the request of Henry Collins. These had been delivered to several members of Collins' crew, who came in the ship's boat to fetch the scheduled goods and to take them on board the Loyalty which was lying near Limehouse or Greenwich. The goods and provisions were of the value of £10-07-08.[1]
