Biographical synthesis

Robert Garrat (b. ca. 1600; d. ?). Waterman.

Resident in 1656 in the parish of Allhallows Barking.

Evidence from High Court of Admiralty

Fifty-six year old Robert Garrat deposed on December 3rd 1656 in the High Court of Admiralty. He was examined on a libel in the case of "Hopgood and others against the Stamboline aforesaid and against Hill". Garrat stated that he knew the ship formerly known as the Stamboline and now the Ligorne factor. In April 1654 he Garrat had carried goods to the Stamboline, which then lay at Ratcliff Crosse. He had received the goods at Tower Dock at the direction of Mr Abrahall's servant, who brought the goods in a cart from Abrahall's shop.[1]

It is clear from the separate deposition in the same case, of Nicholas Oliver, servant and apprentice of Thomas Abrahall, resident in the parish of Allhallows Barking, that Thomas Abrahall was a ship chandler.[2]
