Biographical synthesis

Robeart Luington (alt. Robert Lewington) (; d.?). Waterman.

Resident in the parish of Allhallows Barking.

Evidence from High Court of Admiralty

Twenty-seven year old Robeart Luington deposed on December 11th 1654 in the High Court of Admiralty. He was examined upon a libel in the case of "Otgar against Gallison".

Luington stated that about two and three quarter years ago, before the start of the wars with the Dutch, he was employed by the merchant David Otgar to carry three bales of goods abord the Redd Hart, which lay near Saint Catherines at anchor. Another waterman, Edward Dangerfeild, was also employed by Otgar, to carry three additional bales of goods to a nearby ship named the Queene Hester. Both Luington and Dangerfeild departed from Customshouse Key, where they received the goods, to take them to their respective ships.[1]
