Notes on Ship

Letter from the Navy Commissioners to the AdmiraltySPD-1658-9
According to their reference of the petition of Capt. Jonas Poole, have examined the taking up of the Mary Rose in the Straits by Capt. Badiley and Mr. Longland, and find she was let by the latter, for whose use the bill of freight was made out and received. No force was used, but a protest from Capt. Badiley when the ship was in pay that she was then not delivered. Capt. Poole has produced certificates from credible merchants that he was damaged to the extent of 500l. by her being unloaded at Porto Ferraio. With certificate by Wm. Vincent and Wm. Rider, 28 June, that as arbitrators between Capt. Jonas Poole and the owners of the Mary Rose, they have examined the accounts of the ship for her voyage from England to Scanderoon, and thence to Leghorn, in 1652, and find that she was taken by Capt. Badiley for the service of the State, and her goods, which were designed for England, were turned on shore at Porto Ferraio, where much of them was lost, damaged, and stolen, which Capt. Badiley was legally bound to make good to the owners in London. Noted to have a certificate that Capt. Poole has made good to his owners that damage of 500l. which was allowed to the freighters.
