The following entry would appear to refer to this vessel: '4 June 1647: Petition presented by Frances, wife of John Springham, to the Committee of the Navy. ‘Her husband was minister at Galway, in Ireland, but by reason of the troubles was deprived of his livelihood, and after serving in the fort there was forced to leave for England. She followed with her child, and on coming to London found he was gone to sea in the "Fellowship" in the Parliament's service. Prays that she may receive two months of the five months and two weeks’ pay due to her husband as chaplain in the "Fellowship". Underwritten. I. Due to John Springham, as chaplain in the “Fellowship” 13£ 7s. 10d. II. Order of the Committee of the Navy to pay to petitioner for her relief in her husband's absence, taking care that the same be deducted out of his pay.’ Cal. S.P. Domestic Series 1645‒47, p. 605.
