Biographical synthesis

John ffooka (b. ca. 1610; d. ?). Mariner.

Boatswain of the ship the Dolphin of Dunkirk (Master: Christian Sola).

REsident in 1654 in Dunkirk in Flanders.

Evidence from High Court of Admiralty

Forty-four year old John ffooka deposed on April 4th 1654 in the High Court of Admiralty.[1] He was examined on interrogatories in the cause of "Pickering and company against the shipp the Dolphin, Christian Sola master".[2]

The case concerned the seizure of the Dolphin, allegedly a ship of Dunkirk, by an English private man of war. The mariners of the Dolphin claimed that their ship was on a voyage from Bordeaux to Danzig with a lading of wines, but the counter claim by the English is that she was bound for the United Provinces.
