Biographical synthesis

Robart Beebee (; d.?). Waterman.

Resident in the parish of Saint Olave Southwark in 1656.

Evidence from High Court of Admiralty

Forty-three year old Robart Beebee deposed on November 21st 1656 in the High Court of Admiralty.[1] He was examined on an allegation on behalf of Southwood in the case of "Rasmusson and Southward".[2]

The case concerned a ship named the Justice, which had arrived in the river Thames. Robert Beebee stated that Mr Southwood had sent a porter to Beebee's house requesting him to come to the Kingsheade Tavern on New Fish Street hill. Beebee arriving at the tavern, Southwood ordered him to go with his lighters to the ship the Justice, where he was to receive from the ship a lading of fish, deals, tar and balks belonging to Southwood. Southwood wanted speedy service, since he would be liable to pay demurrage if the ship were held beyond seven days. Consequently, Beebee set off together with his servants and four lighters to receive the goods.[3]
