London Gazette 1668 Jan. 17 - Several pieces of ships, boats, and Buoys have been lately seen floating 3 which gives us reason to believe that several wrecks have been occasioned on the Goodwin by the last bad and stormy weather. Only the Roebuck and one merchant ship are now riding in the downs. Three seamen belonging to the Roebuck having been discovered to have been guilty of breaking open an house in this place, one of them being apprehended, were after the restoring of their plundered goods carried on board by their Commander where they were duck't and towed thence on shore at their boats stern, and afterwards cashiered.
