Biographical synthesis

Henry Shippman (alt. Henricus Shippman) (b. ca. 1626; d. ?). Mariner.

Gunner of the coal ship the Comfort of Ipswich.[1]

Resident in 1666 in Ipswich in the county of Suffolk.

Evidence from High Court of Admiralty

Fifty year old Henry Shippman deposed on November 20th 1666 in the High Court of Admiralty.[2] He was examined on a libel in the cause of "Samuel Parke, Nicholas Bradly et lory propreitary navis the Comfort con the Hopefull Seaventure cujus Henricus Robinson [?ert] magister et con Dnum Emanuelem Sorrell militem ejusqur [?Notorios][3]

Henry Shippman stated that he knew the ship the Comfort of Ipswich (Master: XXX). In the middle of October 1666 the Comfort was coming from Newcastle with a lading of coals. She was forced due to weather to put into Grimsby Road in the River Humber and rode there for several days. Another ship, the Hopefull Seaventure (Master: Henry Robinson) also rode there for three days, about half a mile from the Comfort. Just short of midnight the Hopefull Seaventure fell foul of the Comfort.[4]
