* This Houfe had its Beginning from a generous Contribution, in order to fupport
diftrejfed Sailors, and Mariners Widoivs, of the Town : But a Patent from the
Crown being obtained, many fuch Perfons, from other Places, have enjoy 'd here
this happy Benefit. Twelve Elder Brothers, with Six Afiiflants, have the Manage-
ment of it : whofe Determinations, (which relate betiveen Maflers and their
Seamen) and Opinions in Tryals at Law, concerning Tranfaelions on the Ocean,
are very much regarded. From thefe, are chofeu annually Two Wardens ; at whofe
hleelion, they a If o join, with their Votes, thofe of the young Brethren : And out
of the latter, Two Stewards are likewife appointed. The Place (which has a
decent Chapel belonging to it) is the Property of a Society of Merchants, -oho have
richly endoufd it. " Herein, belaio Stairs, are Thirty pretty Chambers, for as many
poor Women, where they find comfortable Relief Above, are Two Noble Rooms :
One, for the Brethren to consult their Affairt ; the Other, it the l'laee wherein
are 'made Sails for large Ships, or ksser Vessels. In the latter, near the Ceiling,
hangs a Canoe, or little Boat, cover' d with Shins ; A Groenlander a'.s- represented
in Effigy sitting therein, with his Lower Parts below Deck : A Pair of Oars in his
Right nand ; and a Javelin or Bart (wherewith 'tis thought he wounded the more
stubborn Fish) in his Left. On his Head seems a sort of Trencher Cop; and a
Bag of Skins lag by hvt%, either to feed what he caught of the Filing Race, or else
to contain a certain Oyl, wherewith he used to entice them. He had also with
him a larqe Jaw Bone of a mighty Whale. Captain Andrew Barker took
him upon the Sea, (in his' Boat with all these Implements, still j/cescrv'd, except the
natural Bodi/, for which the Effigy is substituted) in the Tear 1613. But so ill
did this seeming son of Neptune brook his Captivity, that, refusing to eat what
was kindly offered him, he died in Three Bays Time.

t Two of the Years, fucceffively, he kept in that Office, being upheld by the
Parliament, tho' it was a direct Violation of the Laws, and contrary to
the Conftitutions of King/lon-upon-HuU.

Mors omnibus communis.

i In the Year 1635, the Plague, (which had vifited the Inhabitants of many
other Sea-Ports) begun to rage in this Town, and in Time took away the Life
of that Magiflrate. No wife Precaution was able to prevent the Contagion.
People fled into the Country. The Gates were foon order'd to be shut up.
A ftrict Guard was placed, Day and Night, in order to prevent any more
from going out, or coming in ; and the Watchmen were only allowed to re-
ceive Provifions, which foon became very dear, and were timorously thruft in,
at Places made fit for the Puqiofe. No Societies were suffer'd to meet. The
Churches and Schools clos'd up : Scarce any Body walk'd the Streets, (except
thofe who cry"d out for the Dead '.' ) where Grafs grew between the Stones of
the Pavement, as a very melancholy Scene ; and all feem'd buiy'd in a pro-
found Silence. In Time of Lent, his Grace, RI C H A R D NEIL, Lord Arch-
bishop of York, was apply'd to, for Licenfe, that, upon this Occafion, the Inha-
bitants might eat Flesh. The good Archbishop told the Petitioners, He could
not conceive what Authority he had to grant it : But in all Cases of extreme Nc-
ccfiity, as in Weaknefs, or Sicknefs, especially in such a deplorable State as theirs teas ;
the Minijiers might, on Certificates from the Phyjicians, grant such a reasonable Li-
berty, during the Holy Seafo/i : Therefore, added the pious Prelate, let the like Method
betaken : And I earnejlly befeech the Almighty God of Heaven and Earth, to heal,
prefeii-t, and Jlrciigthen, both the Bodies and Souls of our Afiflicled Brethren. This
condefcending Advice being taken, had good Effect: for fome Time : But, alas !
in 1638, the Sicknefs increafing by the Intemperature of the Air, which feem'd
to be in a Sort of Stagnation, without the leaft comfortable Gale or Breeze ; the
Markets were cry'd down : To fupply which Want, and further their Relief,
the Juftices, of the neighbouring Place;-, were oblig'd to fend in Carts both Pro-
\ili'jn> and Necefiaries to the Side of the Garrifon ; where they were bought,
(by a few of the Town's Inhabitants, deputed on that Account) and after fenl
jes to the Town's Crofs, to be difpos'd of, at the mod reafonable Prices.
But as all Trade and Mercantile Affairs feem'd as it were under a gloomy Shade,
or rather might be deem'd as quite extinct ; fo the wretched Confequences ap-
peal, in the deplorable Circurn fiances of above Two Thoufand Perfons; who,
from opulent Fortunes, were now become the piteous Objects of Chriftian Cha-
rity ! Others, that could afford it, were heavily affeffed, Weekly, both in Town,
and in the Country, to fupport the Afflicted ; befides, to maintain the Altend-
anU of the Vifited, whilft they were living in languishing Mifery ; and to
reward those, who took Care to bury the Dead. The Number thai perish'd were
about 2730 Perfons, excluding thofe who tied, or died of other Distempers,
which alniofl. doubled the Number. This Pestilence continued, till about the
loth of June, 1639, when it pleas'd GOD to ceafe : And it was near the Mid-
dle of the Yifitation that Mr. Ramfden became a Victim to it, amongst others.

t That Gentleman, Come Time before hi- Death, had a great Defire to la) down
his Gown, so that he might spend the Remainder i>f his Days, in a happy Re-
tirement, from publick Bufinefs. To obtain which, (in May, 1678.) he be-
fought the Bench i" accept of an Hundred Pounds, the Interest thereof to he
apply'd for the lie of the Poor ; on Condition, that lie might be difmnTed
from the Office of an Alderman. But the (/nun requiring Time 'till next Hall-
Day, the Mayor then told him, That as they were nil very fenfible of his being a
ferviccable, good and honourable Per/on : fa liny roere not in the lead willing to
part with Jo excellent a Magistrate : And therefore as earnestly requested, That
ould be fleas' J to relinquish his Desire. After some reasonable Solicita-
tions to him, for that Purpofe, he was contented to remain in his ufual
eminent Station. And tho' the Mone) offer'd by him seem'd thereby Inst to
the Poor ; yet hi- Goodnefs was such, that, (as I found recorded in St. Mary's

Worth of Bread to he distributed t<> them every Lord's Day) he charitably
gave Two Shillings, Weekly, to he laid out, the -nine Way, for the Relief
ofthofe, whose Neceffities required the like Affistance.

• In the Year 1678, he desired to he discharged from the Office >>l an Alder-
man : And tho' hi- Request "as at first denv'd ; yet he continu'd so ear-
nestly preffing, that, submitting to any Fine the Court should please to lay
upon him for their kind I inn. the}- withdrew ; and, among them-

selves, propos'd Three Sum-, in the like Cafe-, to he paid by -ucli Aldermen,
who requested to he discharged for the future : When it was agreed, That
either Fifty. Seventy-Five, or One Hundred Pound-, should be the Fine ; and
to be voted for, according to Discretion. Put the middlemost Sum wa, allotted
for this Gentleman to pay. whereby he obtained an entire Dismiffion.
