Resided in 1659 in Chatham in the county of Kent.
Evidence from High Court of Admiralty
Thirty-eight year old William Boureman deposed on March 15th 1659 in the High Court of Admiralty. He was examined on an allegation on behalf of Thomas Grove in the case of "Luke Wood against Thomas Grove".
William Boureman stated that he had been in discussion with a Mr Bartlet, the carpenter of the ship the Peace. Bartlet had told Boureman that the Newfoundland fish laden on the ship had been laden in wet and rainy weather by Luke Wood, and that some were quite rotten.
Boureman himself came aboard the Peace at Plymouth as she was returning home to London from Newfoundland, and travelled with her to London. He became friendly with Mr Bartlet the carpenter, who told him that the ship's master Thomas Grove had not missed the island of Barbados through inability or willfulness.
