On St. Cecilias day, the 22 of November 1633 with a gentle
Northerne gale we set saile from the Cowes about 10 in the
morninge, toward the needles, being rockes at the south end
of Ile of Wight, till by default of winde we were forced to
ankour at Yarmouth, wch very kindly saluted vs how beit we
were not out of feare, for the seamen secretly reported that
they expected the post with letters from the Counsell at
London: but God would tende the matter, and sent tht night
soe strong a faire winde as forced a ffrench barke from her
ankor hold driveing her foule vpon our pinnace forced her to
set saile with losse of an ankour, and take to Sea, that being
a dangerous place to floate in, whereby we were necessarily to
follow, least we should part companie, and thus God frus-
trated the plot of our Seamen, this was the 23 of Novemb:
on St. Clements day who wonne his Crowne by being cast into
the Sea fastned to an ankor; that morneing by 10 a clocke
we came to Hurste Castle, and thence were saluted with a
shot, and soe passed by the dangerous needles, being certaine
sharpe rockes at the end of the Iland, much feared by Seamen
