John Wheelwright (alt. Wheelewright). Armourer and one of company of the ship the ffortune.
Resident in 1655 in the parish of Saint Buttolph without Bishopsgate.
Evidence from High Court of Admiralty
Forty-four year old John Wheelwright deposed on November 21st 1655 in the High Court of Admiralty. He was examined on an allegation on behalf of Thomas Browning in the case of "Thomas Browning master of the shipp the ffortune and Richard Hasleton against Joseph Tilley and others, owners of the same".
John Wheelwright stated that he was a member of the company of the ffortune from July 1654 until March 25th 1655. Thomas Browning was the master of the ship. The ship went on a voyage from London to Sally on the Barbary coast and to other ports before returning to London.
Forty-six year old John Wheelwright deposed on July 11th 1656, in an unsigned deposition in the High Court of Admiralty, whose text has been cross-hatched. He was examined on a libell in the cause of "Browning against Vander post Tilley and others".
The producent in this cause is Robert Browning, master's mate and sopra cargo of the ffortune, rather than Thomas Browning, the ship's master. Wheelwright states that he knew the owners of the ship to be Adrian Vanderpost and company, at the time of her voyage from London to Sally, in the south Mediterranean.
One month earlier, John Wheelwright, giving his age as forty-six and residence as the parish of Saint Buttolphe without Bishopsgate, London, had deposed in support of Thomas Browning, the ship's master, against Vanderpost and company. This deposition is signed, unlike the July 1656 cross-hatched deposition.
