Thomas Dison (b. ca. 1611; d.?). Shipwright.
Resident in 1661 in Redriff in the county of Surrey
Evidence from High Court of Admiralty
Fifty year old Thomas Dison, a Redriff shipwright, and William Eaton, a Wapping mariner, jointly deposed on January 23rd 1661 in the High Court of Admiralty. They were examined "Touching the perishableness of the John of ffeversham".
They stated that the John of ffeversham lay "a little belowe the Church Staires at Rederiffe" and had done so for several months. The ship lay close to Thomas Dison's house, and came to lye there about thirteene months earlier. Both Dison and Eaton had recently been aboard her and viewed her and stated that "shee lyes in a very perishing condition , and the water hath cleare passage in and out of her, and she is at present about halfe full of water". They found her unserviceable and "ffit for nothing but to breake upp". Held by only one anchor she was out risk of breaking loose and then falling foul of other boats. Her value was at most £35 sterling.
Dison signed with a marke TP and Eaton signed with his name.
