Notes on Ship

From: 'House of Commons Journal Volume 3: 01 April 1643'
That it be recommended unto Sir Wm. Lewes, Governor of Portesmouth, to give a Speedy Dispatch in delivering the Guns, and Gun Stores, that are in his Power, and belonging to the Swiftsure and Jocelyn, riding in Portesmouth Harbour.

Goods taken by ForceW015
From: 'House of Commons Journal Volume 3: 13 June 1643'
that Colonel Moore shall have his Ship, lately called the William and Thomas, with all the Goods and Tackle, restored unto him, which was taken from him, by the Forces of the Earl of Derby, riding in the Harbour at Leverpoole: And the Captain of the Jocelyn, or in whose Power else the said Ship and Goods are, are hereby required to deliver the same to such Persons, as shall be appointed by Colonel Moore to receive the same: And, for their so doing, this shall be to them, and every of them, a sufficient Discharge

Sent to HullW015
From: 'House of Lords Journal Volume 5: 9 July 1642'
I have ordered for Hull Three Ships, according to the Votes of the House of Commons; videlicet, His Majesty's Ship The Charles, Sampson and Josseline of the Merchants; and have likewise appointed The Unicorne and Rainbow of the King's to join with those Merchant Ships to the Northward, for the bringing in The Lyon and Providence, and intercepting what Arms or Ammunition may be transported to the North

At HullW015
From: 'House of Lords Journal Volume 5: 18 July 1642'
There is come into the Road Two Ships, The Sampson and The Josselyne. Captains Moyer and Pygott have done extraordinary good Service, and helped us much. I desire some Expressions may come from Parliament of the Acceptance thereof; and that neither of these may be sent for away, being that they are now acquainted with this River, and the best Means of clearing it. They have mounted some Pieces of one Side of the River, and have endeavoured to do the like upon the other Side; but have, by Captain Pigott, been prevented, who hath, after Eighty Shot of Great Ordnance, taken Three of their Pieces. Moyer brought in Four Gentlemen of Quality, Troopers, with Eleven good Horses.
