Biographical synthesis

Joos Bateman (b. ca. 1620; d. ?). Merchant.

Resident in 1658 in the parish of Saint Martin Orgar, London.

Evidence from High Court of Admiralty

Thirty-eight year old Joos Bateman deposed on December 20th 1658 in the High Court of Admiralty. He was examined in the case of "Vanbrough and Nicholas against Rois".

Joos Bateman stated that William Van Brough was the lawful owner of "one fatt of black and brown thredd containing one hundred eightie and seaven ?dyen of thredd". This thread was laden on board a ship at Flushing, whose master was William Rois. The thread was to be brought to London for delivery to William Van Brugh.[1] At the time of the lading Baldwin Mathewes, the factor of Van Brugh, dwelt at Middleborowe (Middleburg).[2]

After the departure of the ship, Joos Bateman states he heard on the Exchange in London that William Rois' ship had met with disaster. Meeting William Rois on the Exchange, Joost Bateman asked after the goods, and was told that the damage was little. However, upon delivery of the goods, Bateman saw that a good portion of the thread was damaged and rotted by water.[3]
