"Records of Suffolk County Court, 1671-1680, Part I" published by the Colonial Society of Massachutsetts in 1933 by the University Press, John Wilson & Son, Cambridge, USA and found in "Publications of the Colonial Society of Massachutsetts, Vol. XXIX" summarizes the Case of William Pennell vs. William Pendell which appears to have occured on 20 May 1675. William Pennell commanded the ship "Friends Increase" on behalf of owners out of Falmouth, England.He had hired William Pendell to be the ship's carpenter.Pennell, on behalf of himself and the ship's owners, sued William Pendell for damages caused by Pendell's absenting himself from his duties.The Jury found for Plaintiff Pennell and ordered forfeiture of Defendant William Pendell's wages according to law and court costs. The above noted William Pendell would appear to be the same person who arrived in New London, CT in or before 1676 and became employed by Ralph Parker as a Mariner Ship-Wright.I understand this is in essence a ship's carpenter.From the information provided in the case, one could speculate that our William Pendell came to New England as a crew member of the ship "Friends Increase" and that at some point in his employment, he jumped ship in Boston.(i.e. he left the ship without receiving his wages.)It also suggests that he may have previously lived in or near Falmouth, England, the ship's home port. Has anyone previously discovered the above court case and followed up the clues placing William Pendell in Suffolk Co., MA and Falmouth, England?Since I have never seen any such reference in the past, I think it is an area to be researched.
